Why Is York Popular?

York is a cathedral city in North Yorkshire that houses over 156,000 people. It is the administrative centre and the largest settlement of the City of York district.

York’s origins can be traced to the prehistoric age around 8000 and 7000 BC, with Mesolithic people having once lived in the area. The actual city was founded in 71 AD by the Romans, serving as a fortress for legionary soldiers. It was originally called Eboracum. After the Normans had conquered England, York developed into a major cloth manufacturing and trading centre, with products from all over Europe were bought and sold in the city.

From the reign of the Tudors to the Georgians, York saw great political turmoil. Catholic orders were put to an end under King Henry VIII’s rule. Guy Fawkes, the conspiracist responsible for the Gunpowder Plot, hailed from York. The Parliamentarians laid waste to the city during the Civil War. Amidst all the social upheaval, York remained an important city that found economic prominence through its popularity with wealthy northerners.

The introduction of railways to York in the 19th century helped turn it into a key transport route for the country, jumpstarting engineering and confectionery businesses in the city as well. York’s transportation foundation came to be the bedrock for its modern-day success in the tourism and service industries. York Castle, York Minster, and the Theatre Royal stand out as the city’s greater cultural sites, while the annual York Food & Drink Festival brings in hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.

York’s role as the administrative centre of the wider City of York and a major transport hub in northeast England puts it in the prime position of attracting businesses.

Taybar Security is known for providing security officers that exude professionalism in their work. Our company built this reputation through an extensive recruitment and training process. Every security guard that joins our ranks has to pass a detailed background check and earn a licence from the Security Industry Authority (SIA). We also require each security officer to have at least five years of experience in keyholding and alarm response services.

About our Security Accreditations

Taybar Security is approved by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) to provide security services throughout the UK. The SIA is the regulatory body of the private security industry. It is responsible for setting standards for private security firms to follow. It is also in charge of licencing private security workers. Security companies that need guidance on how to improve their services can consult the SIA for valuable insight. Before the SIA’s establishment, legal compliance was handled by local councils, each with their own set of requirements before they would grant authority to private security workers looking to provide their services in the area.

The SIA streamlined authorisation for all private security companies, and in doing so improved the quality of services in the industry and raised the credibility of the entire industry. With SIA approval, Taybar Security is a security contractor that you can count on.
