York City Walls
York City Walls is a very famous wall in York city. This is a good attractions point in this city. The walls are a unique way of getting around the city. You can pretty much get to the major attractions from some point on the wall, so it's really nice to just walk around and take in the scenery. Tourist can stay and find more hotels in York. There are good photo options as well. York is at its most picturesque in springtime when the daffodils are blooming. These beautiful spring flowers enhance the earthen ramparts, which were razed by the Romans and the Anglo-Danish kings of York but strengthened later by the Normans. There are almost three miles of encircling medieval wall which has been carefully maintained and restored over the centuries and which still has considerable remnants of the original Roman walls integrated with and strengthened by the medieval structures. The entrance to the walls is free and they are open during daylight hours.
