The historic city of York is encircled by more intact stone walls than anywhere else in the country. Originally constructed by the Romans in 71 A.D. as a form of military defence, the walls have been replaced in parts many times over the centuries. Fortified during the Danes occupation of the city in 867, an earth bank was added and the walls strengthened. Much of the wall that exists today was built during the 13th and 14th centuries, and it brings a great sense of heritage to the town.
Having taken 250 years to build, York Minster is the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and dominates the city's skyline. The impressive structure sports large panels of stunning stained glass, whilst the western window incorporates a heart-shaped design that is affectionately known as 'The Heart of Yorkshire'. York has been home to chocolatiers for many years, as the birthplace of Nestlé (formerly Rowntree) and Terry's (now owned by Kraft). The city is also noted as the most haunted place in Europe, with over 504 recorded hauntings according to the Ghost Research Foundation International. What's more, York is supposedly host to the 'Ghosts of the Greatest Longevity', with the famous Roman Legionnaires said to reside in Treasurer's House.
