K is for King's Manor


This is the lovely ornate doorway of The Kings Manor, York's residence of choice for visiting monarchs. Henry VIII, Charles I and James I have all stayed here. In 1562 a room was specially commissioned for a reconciliation meeting between Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of  Scotland, however events overtook them and that meeting never took place.

    1. It belongs to the University of York and houses their Archaeology dept. and appropriately enough the dept of Mediaeval studies.
