Last weekend we went to York for our friends birthday.
We were only there for a couple days, but we tried to see (and photograph) as much of it as possible!
Clifford’s Tower, the keep of York Castle.
York Minister, the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe.
The Shambles – an old Harry Potter style street full of cute little boutiques and tea rooms.
St. Helen’s Square.
The infamous Betty’s (York branch, obvs). Home to a wide variety of teas, coffees, and some seriously scrummy cakes. More on our Afternoon Tea visit here.
Inevitable Issy photo’s of nature/flowers – this time, in the Museum Gardens.
The ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey.
York Cocoa House for a rose flavoured hot chocolate and chilli chocolate truffles.
Then made a brief stop at an Italian deli/restaurant to pick up some prosciutto, olives and ALL THE PAN DI STELLE BISCUITS.
Our final stop was to The House of Trembling Madness – a medieval ale house and specialist beer merchant/store. The pub upstairs may be small, but what it lacks in size it completely makes up for in decor… it’s like stepping back in time! Speciality beer by candlelight? Yes please.
