When you see York, you will be reminded of the ancient Romans and one word to describe anything related to the Romans is breathtaking. The walled city boasts a myriad of attractions, which makes it hard to choose one if you are hard-pressed for time. Its York Minster, however, is not to be missed.

Ringed with the medieval walls, York has been protected by the city walls for over 2,000 years. Keep reading to find out the best cottages in York, England.
