    take a walk on the city walls which apparently are dated from the roman period . It goes all the way around the towncentre and is quite a walk, but also a nice view. You can see the cathedral and the old gardens .

    The old city walls of York can be walked (where they are still safe of course,) and give wonderful views of the city.

    The Romans built the first walls around York and although the walls you can see today were built in Medieval times there is still evidence of the Roman foundations in various places.

    Opposite the Tourist Information Office is a little piece of the original Roman wall which was built around 300 BC. It was built by Constantius Chlorus, a Roman emperor who died in the city.

    The York Walls encircle part of the city. When visiting the walls one can have nice views of the Minster and the whole town. Remember no to miss Bootham Bar, most important gate.

    Take a walk along the remains of the city walls. Views of the old town are splendid. Afterward, go through the Minster.
