Travelogue

Welcome to the city of York, set in the northern shire of England. The home of emperor's and king's, convict's and criminal's and our very own Henry Dent.

Blessed with an abundance of character and ripened with tales to tell, the city has sat for many a century upon the vale. Whilst smaller cities blossomed and grew to swallow their surrounding settlements; York has stayed safely within sight of its walls and a sense of playing second fiddle rests upon the city's shoulders: Its prince will never be king, its cathedral never host a coronation. But still, its ancient beauty enchants all comers. Its narrow streets with brightly lit windows, overhung by an array of olden day dwellings, welcomes and covers each traveller like a warm woollen cloak. Within days of arriving, a visitor feels as though they belong, as if they have made a new friend who is rooted and understated and strong, who will remain forever where their feet have been set.

So wander the streets and snickelways and visit the places where Henry's story was acted out; 'For all the world is a stage and all of you are merely players upon it.'
