Sycamore Guest House
Had a lovely 3 days in York, staying at the Sycamore Guest House. Had a lovely welcome, and the room was great, plenty of cupboard space, light and airy, with an en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was very good, and always served with a smile. I'd certainly stay here again.

Perfect safe/quiet location for a pleasant 10 min walk into central York, local street parking. Been using Sycamores for quite a number of years, value for money and breakfasts that are memorable, strongly recommended. Elizabeth & Spyros are warm and welcoming

The magnificent Cathedral in York, known as York Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe, renowned for containing the largest collection of medieval stained glass in England. Built in the Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular styles it is a pure classic of the period. Five hundred and eighteen feet in length, it is two hundred and forty one feet wide at the transept and its central tower rises one hundred and ninety eight feet making it the largest lantern tower in Britain. Bede records that a small wooden chapel was built on this site in 627 A.D. for the baptism of Edwin, king of Northumbria. Edwin's successor Oswald enclosed the chapel in stone and dedicated it to St. Peter, as the Cathedral in York has been ever since.

Clifford`s Tower
North Yorkshire
In 1068, William the Conqueror built a motte-and-bailey castle on the present site of Cliffords Tower in York, to strengthen his military presence in the north. The tower is now the most prominant remaining part of the castle, which was rebuilt in stone in the 13th century. Today, views from the Tower over York show why it played such a key role in the control of northern England.
