York etc.

York Minster glows with fading light behind deep shadowed streets.

Monk Bar is not a place to get a drink. It's one of the entrances (a Bar) thru the city wall to the Town Center, the old part of town that’s surrounded by the wall. In better weather, you can enter a door on the other side and take stairs up to the wall walk.

The Ouse River flows along the southern edge of York.

A tourist admires a bronze model of the Minster section of town, on display across the street from York Minster.
