The North Yorkshire city of York is dominated by York Minster, York's 13th century cathedral. The city centre is enclosed by medieval walls and are the most complete in England. They have the only walls set on high ramparts and they retain all their principal gateways and are a popular walk for many visitors. A feature of central York is the Snickelways which are narrow pedestrian routes, many of which led towards the former market-places in Pavement and St Sampson's Square. The Shambles is a narrow medieval street, lined with shops, boutiques and tea rooms. Most of these premises were once butchers' shops, and the hooks from which carcasses were hung and the shelves on which meat was laid out can still be seen outside some of them. Goodramgate has many medieval houses including the early 14th century Lady Row built to finance a Chantry, at the edge of the churchyard of Holy Trinity church.
York has many museums and historic buildings such as the Yorkshire Museum and its Museum Gardens, JORVIK Viking Centre, the York Art Gallery, the Richard III Museum, the Merchant Adventurers' Hall, the 18th century Fairfax House, the Mansion House and the Treasurer's House.
The city of Durham is located in the north east of England in the district of County Durham. The city is home to the iconic Durham Cathedral and Castle UNESCO World Heritage Site.
