Visiting York

Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans have passed through this small city (located in the north of England). It has been the scene of battles that helped determine the destiny of the entire nation, and its rich variety of architectural and cultural remains is unique in Britain. And it is that 2000 years old give a lot.

You can't get bored here: only the city center has more than 30 museumsplus a bunch of tours among which you can choose, for example, a night tour dedicated to York's most famous ghosts.

If what you want is to go purchases, you can choose to go crazy for any of its most central streets (top brands, luxury boutiques, independent designer stores), or if you decide to go out on the outskirts of the city you will find the new citadel of the independent designer outlet, where you can buy the latest in fashion at reduced prices.

his architectural gem most precious is York Minster (York Cathedral):

It is the second largest Gothic-style cathedral in northern Europe.
It consists of a large nave and chapter room, as we have already mentioned, in the Gothic style that contains some of the oldest and best stained glass windows in the country. Recently restored (2005) it is considered the largest piece of medieval art in the world.

Nor can you stop visiting:

York Castle Museum: It is famous for its wide variety of costumes and displays military and social documents, spanning over 400 years of history.

Ramparts: they are the longest intact walls in all of England. The stretch from Monkbar to Petergate is particularly picturesque.
