Originally built by William the Conqueror, it is all that remains of York Castle today, having once served as a prison and royal mint. A visit wouldn’t be complete without seeing the stunning York Minster Cathedral; it’s the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and can be dated back to the 4th century. Our afternoon is at leisure to the wander around the stalls at St Nicholas Christmas Fair.
