This 360 degree tour shows the mighty west towers of York Minster. This side of the Minster never fails to impress tourists and locals alike. York Minster since its foundation in 627 has always been named after St Peter. The full title of the Minster is, 'The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York'.
The movie shows the streets, High Petergate and Duncombe Place. High Petergate leads to Bootham Bar, one of the main gates into the city. Duncombe Place leads down to the River Ouse & Lendal Bridge.

Opposite the Minster is the Dean Court Hotel (Victorian red brick building).
In the small gardens opposite the hotel is a memorial to the York soldiers in the Second Boer War (1899–1902). The top photo above shows the gardens before this was built.
The smaller church next to the Minster is 'St. Michael le Belfrey' (built 1537). St Michael le Belfrey is where Guy Fawkes was baptised as a baby in 1570. Just around the corner to this, is the Guy Fawkes Hotel.
