The Magic of York, UK: Snickelways, Shambles, and Beaucoup History

Why York? York is an interesting walled medieval city. It's cathedral is magnificent and has whimsical stone heads that inspired an early chapter in Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. It's old medieval street, The Shambles, was said to have inspired Harry Potter's Diagon Alley, and it has lots of snickelways -- alleys between buildings that you can use to navigate around the city. What's not to love? This is a guide to places see and things to do in York and a list of related resources (including fiction set in York).
