Monk Bar is at 63, the tallest of York’s bars and is the north eastern gateway to York’s city walls. It lies at the northern end of Goodramgate, a street that becomes Monkgate on the other side of the gateway.

It is not known who the monks were who gave Monkgate and Mon Bar their name. Monk Bar has four storeys – the first three floors being 14th century and the upper floor being 15th century. Each floor could be defended like an independent fort, even when other floors had been captured. In the 16th century the bar was used as a freeman’s prison. Monk Bar’s barbican was removed from the gateway in 1825.

An ice house dating from 1800 can be found near the city not far from Monk Bar. It was used for storing ice collected in winter, which could later be used in summer time for various purposes.
