About this item

Richard III is probably the York family’s best-known member, but the rest of the dynasty is equally intriguing. From Richard’s father, the Duke of York, to his brother Edward IV, a warrior cast in true Plantagenet mold, to the strong Yorkist queens, including Elizabeth of York, who finally united the family with their longtime enemies the Lancastrians, each person in the York family was a captivating individual. This book explores the places associated with members of this fascinating family and discovers their story through the locations they visited.

Peer into the lives of the Yorks by exploring the cathedrals, castles, battlefields and manor houses that shaped them. Including locations such as Fotheringhay, Baynard’s Castle, Durham Cathedral and the Palace of Westminster among many others. Every site is brought to life through its history, and each entry includes accurate tourist information. For the armchair traveler, extensive descriptions and a collection of photographs will take you on your own journey through these poignant and sometimes controversial locations.
