The City of York:
On The Map: The City of York is located in Northern England, just 25 miles northwest of the major city of Leeds
The City of York boasts a dramatic 2,000 year history. The City, originally named Eboracum, was founded by the Romans in 71 AD, and became the capital of the Roman province of Britannia Inferior. Visitors to York can enjoy a wealth of attractions, museums, historic buildings, shops, restaurants and bars, all within the compact walled city. Indeed, substantial portions of the City’s Walls are still intact today – more so than any other English city – and are a major tourist attraction in themselves. York Minster Cathedral (pictured), is the highlight of the city. The gothic edifice is one of the largest of its kind in Europe, and its Great East Window contains the greatest area of medieval stained glass in the entire world. Another of York’s gems, Clifford’s Tower, offers panoramic views over the city and surrounding countryside. The current stucture dates from the 1300s and is a great example of the power wielded by England’s medieval Kings. The Shambles is a must-visit shopping street in the city. Bulidings, some dating from the 14th century, overhang the street by several feet – so much so, that opposing structures are not very far from touching in some places!
