    City Walls

    From the Minster - Walls can be seen in foreground

    To really get a feel for the city you should stroll at least a section or two of the ancient city walls, open during daylight. Not only do they snake past some of the historic buildings in the city but also walled gardens, monuments, busy streets and the two main rivers.

    A bar - not a gate

    Notice that in York the gates in the wall are called bars whereas the roads leading to the bars are called gates. Confusing I know ;)
