The York Story
This is an ideal place to start any tour of the city of York. The York Story is a permanent exhibition and heritage centre tracing the development of the city over the last thousand years. It uses audio-visual displays, tableaux and models to recreate and explain life in times past.
It is housed in the 15th century St. Mary Castlegate, one of the city's most important churches which is said to have been an early minster. The building was saved for future generations by the York Civic Trust, in 1972, after fourteen years of dereliction.
Its spire is the tallest in the city.
