Nearby iconic York Minister towers over the patchwork of historical buildings, from medieval timber-framed houses on cobbled streets, to Roman Fort remains and ancient abbey ruins. There is an array of independent shops, cafés and restaurants to explore, as well as museums documenting some of the city’s colourful past, from Romans and Vikings who took control of the city, to the Industrial Revolution with the steam trains and engines that paved the way to the future as we know it.
