On a road trip through the north of England one of the must visit locations is York. Furthermore, I have personally come to make a specific trip to England during one of my expert travel and got to visit York again which I loved at my first visit many years ago. The great attraction of this small town is that you can really feel the ambiance of medieval towns. You can find York north of Manchester and Leeds and you can fly directly to Liverpool and then go to this medieval city. In order to plan your visit it would be helpful to know what is a must see on your visit to York in England.

The first thing is to enjoy the atmosphere of a true medieval city. For this you should just wander the narrow streets of the historic center of York. In these streets you will see houses dating back to medieval times but you should not miss those found in York’s most famous street, The Shambles which is the oldest medieval street in England. Another key to your visit is the majestic Gothic cathedral, the largest in northern Europe which is known as the York Minster.

On your visit inside the cathedral things to look out for especially include its spectacular Gothic stained glass. In addition to complete the visit you have to climb the tower of the cathedral from where you will have the best view of York. In short this town is a must visit on your trip through the north of England!
