Travel guide to York
York Minster Glass work 01
York Minster Glass work 01
For centuries York was England’s second city, going back at least to Roman times, when it was called Eboracum before its Viking incarnation as Yorvik. Its minster is one of England’s most beautiful cathedrals and its Archbishop is second in the hierarchy of the Church of England. Nowhere in England, except in central London, is there so much of historical interest. The museums are not all of ages long past. One, particularly appealing to children, is the National Railway Museum.

Nor is it only museums that provide historic interest. There are still substantial sections of the city walls left and one is reminded of the Shakespearian passage about the head of [the Duke of] York being displayed upon the walls of York. The city was to be the early base of his son when he invaded to become, eventually Edward IV of England.

Don’t try to see everything in one day. You’ll end up tired and irritable – but if you are on holiday in northern England, it’s worth more than one trip! [edit text]  [editors]
