Skylines and views

- River Ouse bridges, Views from Safestay Hostel, York Minster, St Mary's Church

The skyline of York is completely dominated by historical buildings. The tallest buildling in York since many centuries is the famous gothic cathedral York Minster, at a height of 61m to the top of the tower. St Mary's Castlegate Church is the second tallest structure (spire height 47m) and St Wilfred's Church 3rd tallest (45m). Almost all other tall structures are churches, except for the York & Selby Magistrates Court. Clifford's Tower itself is not high, but notable as a landmark because it lies on a steep hill. No highrises have been built in York's city center, and no building is allowed to be higher then the cathedral. The Yorkshire Wheel was a modern 54m high ferris wheel, operating at two different locations 2006-2014. One of the few taller modern buildings in York is the 9-storey hotel Park Inn by Radisson, situated right next to River Ouse.

This section is about skyline and views photos taken mainly from one of the bridges above River Ouse, and from my room at the Staysafe Hostel. I was lucky to get a room with views of the York Minster.
