The wall around the city is approximately 3 miles long.
York Minster Abbey a huge building. The stained glass windows are so valuable that they were removed and hid in the country during the war.

A roman caesar in power who insisted on his statue being placed here.
This city is usually very busy, a prime tourist destination with lots of relatively high end shops.
All that remains of the castle that was here.
After the tour, many of the group ate here for lunch.
Herb and I had an afternoon tea and cakes for lunch for $15 pounds or $30 US currency. The scone that came with it was excellent.
