Veritably dripping in history, York is a beautiful, tourist-luring walled city at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss in North Yorkshire, England.

Founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 AD, York grew as a major wool trading centre, became the capital of the northern ecclesiastical province of the Church of England and established itself as a vital railway hub in the 19th century.

I visited the city earlier this year while on tour with The Monochrome Set. Here’s some photos from my wanders around town:
