Key Facts about York

York: No other city in northern England screams 'medieval' quite like York, a city that has lost little of its pre-industrial lustre. Magnificent 13th-century walls enclose a medieval web of narrow streets. The huge and awe-inspiring York Minster lies at the heart and is one of the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals in the world. York has a long history and rich heritage which is woven into virtually every brick and beam in the city. Even though the area has become increasingly popular with tourists, the museums, restaurants, cafes and pubs have all been carefully maintained to honor its heritage.
