  • This is clearly a genuine Roman column which stands in glorious isolation close to the Minster Once you've seen it, there isn't much else to say about it. It's certainly not worth making a special eff...  more »
  • York Minster is the cultural and religious heart of York, and it is remarkable that there are two unique Roman monuments just right outside and opposite each other. This is one of the best preserved R...  more »
  • As a previous reviewer said - "It's a column", and I have to agree that, as far as Roman ruins are concerned, this one lacks the wow factor. Having said that, it is right that the town council re-erec...  more »

  • A fascinating building with so much history too it, one visit is just not enough to say that you have learnt all you can about it. I'll be back that is for sure.
  • Its big, it's Roman, it's a column. A rather plain one, but notable because it is at the far end of the Roman empire. Also relevant because of the nearby statue of Constantine. The Roman emperor who was from Britain. He also cut Britain loose, fled the West and left for Byzantium.
  • Beautifully maintained Roman column opposing the Minster and the statue of Constantine- check it out whilst you're there, gives you a good scale of their buildings with an informative plaque on the circumference of it.
  • Really liked the shape but the entrance fee was too high and I think it could stand some modernisation, this might have counted as entertainment to the Romans but the kids have got ipads now, their needs to be some more interaction!
  • Nice to visit during night
