from the gallery of Robert Gipson
Description:

The Hospitium can be found in museum gardens in the City of York, in the county of Yorkshire, England. it was one of the now ruined Sy Marys abby support buildings.
Its not known for sure what it was originally used for, the official listing of the building Being next to the river it might also have been a warehouse.suggests that it was a place for visitors to stay. There was a gate onto the river right next to the Hospitium so it would have been well placed to serve guests arriving by boat.
