Bootham means ‘at the booths’ and probably refers to booths erected near Bootham Bar, which were used for a weekly market held by the monks of St Mary’s Abbey.

Bootham is a continuation of Petergate outside the city walls beyond Bootham Bar. There has been a gateway here for nearly 2000 years and Bootham Bar stands on the site of one of the four main entrances to the Roman fortress.

The existing structure is not Roman but it has been around for quite a while. The archway itself dates from the 11th century and the rest of the structure is largely from the 14th century. In 1501 a door knocker was installed as Scots were required to knock first and seek permission from the Lord Major to enter the city.

A stretch of the wall of St Mary’s Abbey runs along the southern side of the street.
