Pocket Guide: York Bootham Bar Hotels

Home to some of the United Kingdom's most famous National Parks, North Yorkshire is a magnet for lovers of the great outdoors. That's not the only thing luring in tourists from across the globe, though. The largest county in England can also boast one of the richest histories. Due largely to its proximity to both the North Sea and the border of Scotland, North Yorkshire has played a big role in some of England's most intriguing battles. Much of the county's visible history lies in the City of York. Bootham Bar is one of the city's most popular historical sites and is surrounded by plenty of fabulous B&Bs and hotels.

Bootham Bar

Bootham Bar is an important part of York's city walls, acting as one of four main entrances to the city's Roman fortress. A gateway has been present on the site for close to 2,000 years, though the current structure is slightly more recent. The bulk of the structure dates to around the 14th Century, but parts of the archway itself date as far back as the 11th Century. Bootham Bar was the last of the bars to lose its Barbican, which stayed until 1835.

The north-western gate would once have been used to display the heads of traitors to the crown. Examples of such traitors include a trio of rebels who chose to oppose the restoration of King Charles II - obviously their rebellion didn't end well!
