Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans have passed through this small city (located in the north of England).

You can’t get bored here: the city center alone has more than 30 museums , plus plenty of tours to choose from, for example a night tour dedicated to York’s most famous ghosts .
If you want to go shopping , you can choose to go crazy in any of its most central streets (first 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.
Its most prized architectural gem is York Minster (York Minster) :
It is the second largest Gothic-style cathedral in northern Europe.
It is made up of a wide nave and chapter house, 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 greatest piece of medieval art in the world.
Nor can you stop visiting:
