In the northeastern region of England lies the historic city of York, which was originally founded by the Romans of antiquity. It’s notable for its stunning Gothic cathedral, namely York Minster, and its giant city walls found on both sides of River Ouse. Several of the city’s prominent attractions, including the York Castle Museum that depicts Norman architecture and artifacts, York Shambles for its rustic timber-framed buildings, and the Jorvik Viking Centre that has dioramas of Vikings. York’s also a good destination for travelers that enjoy glamping since there’s a bevy of caravan homes, eco-pods, tents, and yurts in the region.
