- York, Uk -
York is a historic walled city in North Yorkshire, England. At the confluence of the Rivers Ouse and Foss, it is the historic county town of the historic county of Yorkshire.
The city was founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 AD. It became the capital of the Roman province of Britannia Inferior, and later of the kingdoms of Deira, Northumbria and Jórvík. In the Middle Ages, York grew as a major wool trading centre and became the capital of the northern ecclesiastical province of the Church of England, a role it has retained.
In the 19th century, York became a hub of the railway network and a confectionery manufacturing centre. The economy of York is now dominated by services. The University of York and National Health Service are major employers, whilst tourism has become an important element of the local economy.
York is beautiful and is the perfect location to see midevie buildings.
While in York we stayed at The Judge's Lodging located in the heart of York, right in downtown and right next to York Minster. This hotel was cool but it was a little dirty… as in.. there was a teapot in our room and I was about to use it and it had old tea in it and when we went to dinner my napkins had a stain on it… maybe that just a weird me thing but I deff noticed it…. Our room was located on floor 0 and was right next to where they were the loading in the supplies for the week so it was very loud at 6am every day 😬 we were there. On the plus side, the customer service was amazing, breakfast was included, and the location was amazing and the decore was too cute! We were really in York as a stop over from Derbyshire, to Robin Hoods by and Castle Howard.
