My Castle Gateway invites you to reimagine the centre of York – Sat 6 Jul 2019

My Castle Gateway invites you to reimagine the centre of York

The Castle Gateway project is shaping a new area of high quality public realm – a beautiful setting for the city’s heritage assets that reflect the historical context and significance of this area of regional and national importance.

Over this summer My Castle Gateway will be working with any and all who are interested, to refine the open brief for the new public area and to look in more detail at how we can create new spaces and new routes which connect Clifford’s Tower, the Eye of York, Tower Gardens and the Castle Museum.

What’s On?

To launch a summer of activities join us for focused walks and discussions of the area. We’ll be building upon the original My Castle Gateway Open Brief and master plan ideas and developing detailed proposals for how the spaces can enable the different activities you said you wanted.

We’ll consider the challenges of making room for everything from concerts to quiet contemplation. There will be structured walks around the area, each followed by a workshop hosted in the Castle Museum.
