York is a living museum of history. Built on the foundations of its Roman, Viking and Medieval past, today the city’s famous landmarks and historic structures rise all around, but inside and out of the walls.
With clear maps and interesting descriptions, the walks in this guide take the reader through the history of York with as much detail as you would expect from a professional guide.
There are 10 themed walks to guide you through York.
The Evelyn Collection has been in the safekeeping of the Yorkshire Architectural and York Archaeological Society (YAYAS), and offers a glimpse of the unique and unequalled heritage of the City of York.
Illustrating all aspects of York life, its buildings, industry and heritage rarely, if ever, seen before, York – A Rare Insight features a wide selection of images from the Collection which are published for the first time.
