Guy Fawkes’ Birthplace

Guy Fawkes’ Birthplace York for KidsInfamous traitor and gunpowder plotter, Guy Fawkes, was born in High Petergate, York, in 1570. A pub – The Guy Fawkes Inn, of course – now stands in the place of his birth. There’s nothing to see except a sign noting the building’s significance, but you could always pop in for a drink.
