Did I say York was best known for The Shambles? Ouch! Excuse me. Let me quickly retract my latest heresy. York is of course best known for York Minster - the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. A structure so profound, with such a dominating command of the York skyline, that you almost come to think of it as part of the heavens and not the city itself. Nonetheless, it is very much an integreal part of the city and well worth a visit.
