When I came to the old city gate of York, I thought this XX bar was a bar, but I understood that it meant the city gate.
The Roman legions of the year went in and out under this city gate, fighting the barbarian warriors from the north.
Now looking down from the surveillance shooting hole on the wall, there are only colorful tourists.
I still remember that in Harry Potter’s first movie "Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone", Hagrid took Harry to the back door of the Broken Cauldron Bar and knocked 5 times on the red brick wall with his magic wand. The brick wall magically rotated and separated the journey by an arch..."Welcome Harry! to Diagon Alley!" Everything in front of him, the dreamy street scene, made Harry stunned.
The Old City Gate of York is the starting point of the ancient city of York. The towers are very medieval in style, and now there is a small museum inside. Here you can climb the ancient city wall of York, stand on the wall and look at York and feel the vicissitudes of history. It feels like a sudden crossing.
In York, the entrance to the city is called "Bar", so this is not a bar! York is surrounded by a circle of city walls, Bootham is the entrance to the north wall, MicklegateBar in the southwest, MonkBar in the northeast and WalmgateBar in the southeast.
I like this English-style bar very much. The environment and cocktails are well prepared.
