North Yorkshire, England

Yorkshire, admiringly known as York, is one of the oldest towns in England that is as historical as it can get. York is regarded as the archetypal historic English town. With countless tourist attractions – from centuries-old cathedrals to magnificent castles and museums – you will simply run out of things to see and do in York.

Strolling around the cobbled streets of York dotted with historical sites is like going back in time. Book our left luggage service to safely store your belongings while you soak in the sights and sounds of York’s tourism hotspots.

Amble through York’s Medieval City Walls

Exploring the 3-mile long medieval city walls is a must-do activity in York. Leisurely walking along the walls, you’ll be able to catch stunning vistas of ancient Roman structures, and spectacular views of York Minster. Since it takes about two hours to walk the entire stretch, take long breaks during the hike to soak in the panoramic sights.

Size Up the Grand York Minster

With its history dating back to the 13th century, the immense York Minster cathedral is easily the most striking landmark of York.

The Gothic-styled York Minster is not only England’s biggest medieval cathedral but also the largest church in Northern Europe. To admire the cathedral’s stunning features from close quarters, you will have to scale 275 steps to reach the top of the Central Tower.

Atop the Central Tower, York’s highest spot, you will get a bird’s eye view of the city’s skyline.

To ensure your baggage remains safe and secure while you explore York Minster, opt for LEFTIT’s luggage storage service. You can entrust your bags to Phone Universe, our local baggage storage host in York.

Clamber up the Clifford’s Tower

York Castle, situated between Skeldergate Bridge and Fishergate, houses the Clifford’s Tower, which is steeped in history. The original wooden stronghold was constructed by the Normans in 1068 and was replaced by Clifford’s Tower in the 13th century. The imposing tower has been named after Roger de Clifford who was convicted of sedition and put to death here in 1322.

Perched atop a hillock, the Clifford’s Tower offers breathtaking vistas of the city, York Minster, Ouse River and the North York Moors National Park.

Saunter Across the Shambles

The Shambles offers stiff competition to the York Minster, York Castle Museum, and Clifford’s Tower as one of the city’s most popular tourist hotspots. Shambles, which means abattoir or slaughterhouse is a serpentine and narrow thoroughfare located in the city’s historical section. Most of the buildings and edifices lining both sides of the street are as old as the street believed to have been paved in the 14th century.

The street was formerly named “The Great Flesh Shambles” owing to the presence of numerous slaughterhouses that now have transformed into boutiques, restaurants, and teashops. When you amble down the street, you may be able to espy meat hooks hanging outside several shops.

Step Inside the York Castle Museum to Step Back in Time

A stopover at the York Castle Museum is a must if you want to familiarise yourself with the English lifestyle through the ages. Check out the immaculate remodelling of Victorian Street, The Cells, and Toy Stories that chronicles children’s toys.
