York holidays from Gatwick!
The town of York in Northern England is steeped in history with Roman, Viking, Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian influences running through the city. Some of York's key attractions are the York city walls - several undamaged walls which date back to the Roman era. Make sure to visit Shambles Alley, as it is called the best-preserved medieval street in Europe. The street is referred to in the Domesday Book and we know that it has existed continuously for more than 900 years.
The illustrious York Minster is a must see as it is the largest gothic cathedrals in Northern Europe and it is the fifth churdh to be built on its spot and Roman, Viking and Norman artifacts have been found on the site. For a fun activity and perhaps something the kids will enjoy aswell as the botany enthusiasts out there, the York Maze is the largest maze in the United Kingdom and is made up of 1.5 million maize plants.
The Merchant Adventurers Hall is one of the finest enduring examples of a medieval guildhall still standing in Britain. Its structure was completed in 1361.
