At Legacy, we craft an experience like no other, where whichever path you choose, you’ll experience tastes of the three defining eras that shaped York into the vibrant city it is today: from the opulence of Roman Eboracum to the indomitable spirit of the Vikings’ Jorvik, and the enduring heritage of modern-day York. 

the team

“I am inspired by the processes of the pioneers of York’s past; those individuals who turned their imagination into reality, which can now be seen in iconic buildings, revolutionary railways and the heritage of this great city. I am delighted by the opportunity to look at things through a new lens, delivering traditional ingredients in an exciting new style whilst fully utilising the great produce Yorkshire has to offer.” Ahmed Abdalla.
