Here’s what York’s next family attraction could look like – a mini-golf course that takes you on a fun journey through the city’s history.

YorkMix revealed in August 2020 that plans were being made to create the course on Library Lawn, alongside York Explore.

Now York Mini Golf Limited, which was established in 2016, has unveiled detailed proposals for the attraction.

The route would be delimited by the library building, the ruins of the Saint-Léonard hospital, the Roman wall and the Multangular tower.

York Mini Golf is requesting permission to set up the golf course for seven years.

“Twelve holes are offered, each with its own historical reference and purpose,” the company says in planning documents.

“This represents low-impact, low-impact use, which will bring people to a richly historic part of York, which is often overlooked and unappreciated by visitors to the city.
