Download 40 York Wallpapers HD: The Majestic City of England

Nearly 4 million people each year, apparently grow tired of staring at the York Wallpaper they have set as the background on their computer and set off to visit the city for themselves.  Of those visitors to this historical English town, nearly 40% come from overseas and of those, almost half originate from North America.

Resting in the County of North Yorkshire, York is one of the most famous cities in England.  This ancient city has stood at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss since AD 71, being founded during the Roman invasion.  From that point forward, York would become a central feature in a number of key moments in English history.

It is perhaps, this strong connection to the past acts now as a lure, drawing fascinated tourists from everywhere.  So much of that past features prominently in the architecture that remains.  Evidence of the original Roman walls that once surrounded the town still exist, and these, along with the impressive medieval walls, which have been restored, and now cover a three-mile circle around the old city make a strong impression upon visitors.  Just as impressive are the four gateways or “Bars” that complete the ring of fortifications for the city.  Between them, Bootham Bar, Micklegate Bar, Monk Bar and Walmgate Bar stand as mute testament to the turbulent nature of Yorks’ past.

No visit to York would be complete however, without witnessing the majesty that is York Minster.  Completing the stunning array of medieval architecture York Minster has stood since 1472 and promises to stand for some time to come.

Weather visiting the walls, the “Bars” or York Minster, it matters not, wherever you go in York,  opportunities are abound for you to capture some stunning visual imagery of an ancient time long since passed.  With luck, you may find just the right image to replace that York Wallpaper on your computer at home.
