York, England: Walled City Packed with Sights

published 9 years ago by Rick Steves

After London, York is hands-down the best sightseeing city in England. Everything that's great about Britain finds its best expression in this manageable walled town. York delights with its cobbled lanes lined with half-timbered buildings, a towering cathedral, bevy of excellent museums, and lively streets full of welcoming locals. In or out of its museums, York's fascinating history is on full display from Roman times to the Medieval Era to the Industrial Age.
