Test your knowledge on the city of York in this picture based quiz.

York is one of the popular tourist locations in the UK with millions of people from across the world visiting the city every year.

The medieval city has a wealth of history and activities for everyone and its fair to say there is not just one single reason why people visit York.

It could be for the range of iconic buildings such as Yorkminster or Clifford’s Tower, or it could be to visit one of the many museums such as the Jorvik Viking Centre or the Railway Museum which celebrate the diverse past of this city.

There are many iconic buildings within York that have been photographed countless times, but the city is full of hidden architectural gems and you can spend a day in itself searching for secrets in Yorkminster.

Shopping is another great draw for York, with a mix of the modern and traditional right in the heart of the city. Christmas time is when York comes alive, the festive market is one of the most visited in the country.

While you’re here you can try the diverse range of food on offer, there’s traditional afternoon tea available at numerous locations or the relatively new addition of the world street food market close to the Shambles.

If you’ve visited York you may well recognise some of these landmarks quite easily, although are a few lesser known buildings we’ve included that are a little trickier to recognise.

How many can you guess right? Share and challenge your friends to beat your score.
