Situated in the Vale of York, surrounded by the Pennines, Yorkshire Wolds and the North York Moors, York is a city packed full with history and has an extraordinarily rich heritage. It was founded in 71 AD by Romans and has since had many names such as Eboracum, Eoforwic, Jorvik and York as it is named at present.
The city’s architecture attracts many tourists and is widely considered to have the most characteristic architectural structures in England, including the York Minster and York City Walls. Today’s York Minster dates from the 13th century and took hundreds of years to complete, and the York City Walls first emerged nearly 2000 years ago. You can still walk around the historic York Walls today, free of charge and they offer a wonderful opportunity to view the tapestry of old and new properties that lie within their boundaries.
