Come to Micklegate Bar, gateway to York for kings and queens.
As the citys principal gatehouse, the bar has witnessed some of the city’s most important rituals and ceremonies through the ages, from the arrival of a succession of English monarchs to the expulsion of the city’s criminals on their final journey to the gallows at York Tyburn. Step inside the gatehouse to find out how the enemies of the city and the Crown were punished in medieval, Tudor and Stuart York, and learn the surprising story of domestic life in the bar, whose chambers served as a family home for over 700 years.
