Watch This Place

St Leonard's Place has an elegant crescent of buildings that for many years now has been the site of the council offices in York. Prior to 1835 it was known as Mint Yard, no not after the locally produced confectionery, but because the Royal Mint was occasionally sited here in the 16th and 17th centuries. The council offices are moving to a shiny new purpose built building and this building is rumoured to be set to become a hotel.


  1. Will probably make an interesting hotel!

  2. Hsandsome building. Very elegant.

  3. It's lovely. I'm glad you don't have to worry about it being torn down.
