York visit 5 – Museum gardens

For the next part of my York visit, I decided to go to the Yorkshire Museum, located in the spacious grounds known as Museum Gardens. The first things I saw was this fragment of the old city fortifications.

Then I came across some of the sculptures that are spread around the site (I missed a couple, I think)

Atlas, I presume

After a look around the museum, I strolled around to the rear of the buiding where these abbey ruins can be found:

After having a good look at the ruins, I wandered down to this lovely old buiding, known as the Hospitium.

It’s not open to the public.
