THE medieval walls which surround York are among the most complete in England. So history surrounds you in this fascinating city.
A must to see is the Jorvik Viking Centre. In the late 1970s archaeologists uncovered all manner of everyday Viking nicknacks, shoes, tools, household items and the settlement's communal lavatory.
All these goodies were incorporated into the imaginative museum, which takes the form of a reconstructed Viking village which visitors tour while seated in little dodgem cars.
Another splendid thing about the Jorvik Centre and surrounding buildings in the Coppergate area is that they are in sympathy with older areas of the city, such as Stonegate and The Shambles, which are presided over by the huge, brooding Minster.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.
