The historic capital of an ancient Viking, Celtic and Roman melting pot is the proud walled city of York. The York Minster is the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe and the vast array of medieval churches is rivalled only by the number of pubs full of character and fine ales. Squeezed within rugged Roman walls, the city is full of exciting treasures and contrasting features.
Founded two millennia ago by the mighty Romans, York has a well documented ghostly charm as many a crime tales are set within the proud walls of this “Capital of the North”. It’s certainly one of our favourite locations for murder mystery events!
