The King's Manor, York

Part of the King's Manor complex, Exhibition Square, which houses York University's Department of Archeology and the Centres for Medieval and 18th Century Studies. At various times it has been an abbots' house,  the seat of the Council of the North (from Henry VIII), rented property and  The Yorkshire School for the Blind. It is now owned by the City of York Council and leased to the university. The link takes you to a 360ยบ view which shows off the unusual architecture.

  1. It's a beautiful old building with an impressive and unusual history. It's wonderful that it survived through the ages.
