For nearly 2000 years, York was known as the capital of the

north where Constantine was crowned as the first Christian

emperor. In Saxon times York became an important center

for Christianity and learning. The first church on the site

of the current cathedral was built in 627. York's city walls

were built during the 13th century and enclose the city

with its medieval streets, Georgian townhouses and pubs alongside

the river. One of its most popular attractions is the York Minister,

(which took between 1220 to 1480 to complete) and is England's

largest Gothic cathedral which attracts millions of visitors.

Other attractions include the Monk Bar, The Shambles, York Castle Museum, Yorkshire Museum, Clifford's Tower and the River Ouse.
