When you enter the city walls you can see York Minster's tall peak strecthing far over every other building. If you have entered the city at noon you can hear the church bells proudley echo through the city. York Minster is over the bridge and a 20 minutes walk from the bridge. You will pass many monuments, one right next to the Minster had been struck by lighting. Also read the date of how far back the dates go. If you get tired of running, once seeing York Minster, you will definitely get a second burst of wind. York Minster is under construction, yet you can still make out the gothic statues and structure. Look up at the ceiling when you get in. Outside by to the left you can run to a statue of Constantine, who founded York. There are two bridges in York, take the opposite one you took to York Minster. When I took the first bridge there was an ice cream shop. On the way to the other bridge you will go through shops and streets drowning in flowers. Then take a right once you cross the bridge. You will pass a MoatHouse Hotel, which is one of the best hotels to me in England. When you keep running you will come to a Roman Wall. It is best to run on it in the morning when you can see the tranquil countryside wake when the morning mist clears away (be careful, no railing on street side). Then at night to end of the day you could go on a ghost walk. Try and go with a guy named Ray Alexander. He will take you on a walk and tell and show you some haunted places of York. Also you can buy a book from him of the stories. I think to go along on the walk it costs a pound. Also you can go to the York dungeon. Trust me once you live York you want to go back.
