* Barley Hall
"Barley Hall is a stunning medieval house, once home to the Priors of Nostell and the Mayor of York. Until the 1980s the house was hidden under the relatively modern facade of a derelict office block. Only when the building was going to be destroyed was the amazing medieval building discovered and its history uncovered. The building has now been lovingly restored to its original splendour with stunning high ceilings, beautiful exposed timber frames, and possibly the only horn window in England. It has been decorated to replicate what it would have looked like as the Snawsell home around 1483 and boasts a magnificent Great Hall. Visitors to Barley Hall can make themselves at home and sit on the chairs and handle the objects and experience what it would have been like to live in Medieval England."

* Micklegate Bar
"The name Micklegate comes from Mykill (Great) and Gata (Street). After the construction of the medieval city walls, Micklegate Bar became the primary entrance into the city of York. Although the oldest parts of the bar date to the 1100s, the ancient gateway has continued to change over the centuries. York Archaeological Trust refurbished and reopened the Micklegate Bar Museum in Spring 2010." Discover the archaeological and historical record of Micklegate as well as information about visiting it in York.
