Of the four main medieval gateways in York in North Yorkshire, Walmgate Bar is the most complete. It still retains its barbican, its portcullis and inner doors.
With the oldest part of the structure dating back to the 12th century, other parts of the bar are from construction during 14th to 16th centuries. During its history, it has been burned by rebels in 1489 and battered by cannon during the siege of 1644.
