York Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


The proud medieval city of York remains well protected behind its virtually intact walls, encircling it between the River Ouse and River Foss. Today, visitors may wander along its rampart walk, offering fine views of the cathedral. York Minster is the great architectural monument of the region, symbolising a rich historical legacy. At sunset, the building’s west front is a remarkable sight.
