York is an ancient walled city in the northeast that dates back to ancient Roman times. It's famed for its vast thirteenth-century Gothic cathedral, the Minster, and equally well known for its fine retail and culture scene. The Monk Bar gatehouse is worth a visit to learn more about King Richard III and the city walls offer superb views of the River Ouse. There's a huge amount to see and do here, as the city has more visitor attractions per square mile than any other in the UK. When you've filled up on culture, history, retail and architecture, it'll be time to treat yourself at one of the many high-quality and award-winning restaurantsacross York city centre.
