  • Excellent bar and great photos with a lot of history, if that's what you like
  • Probably the more interesting historically of the two Bar museums Micklegate contains scale models of battles that Henry VII was involved in. There are also larger scale models of the main characters involved in the information about the main characters involved in the Wars of the Roses. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. A combined ticket with the King Richard III Experience at Monk Bar makes this definitely worth visiting combined with the (free) wall walk which will take you around half the city and provide you with good views of the cathedral.
  • I found the entrance (stairs leading upwards) by accident, best surprise from York. The walls are well preserved, I enjoyed the walk around the city.
  • Great museum, good value ticket for multiple places
  • Had a wonderful morning walking the wall 😀
