About Bootham Bar - A York Gate House

This four-story Bootham Bar (gatehouse) is the tallest and most elaborately decorated of the four bars in the City of York and was built in the early 14th century.

Bootham Bar was intended as a self-contained fort or gatehouse and each of the floors are capable of being defended separately from each other. It is located on the east side of the city on the A64 in line with the city walls of York.
