This was our third visit to York this year so it’s fair to say that this is a city that we really enjoy spending time in. We know our way around much better now and the pressure to do all the tourist sites was off. So, no visit around the inside of York Minster this time and no trip to the Railway Museum or York Castle Museum.
As the weather was better this time too, we spent a bit more time outside. We did a short part of the City walls and spent time in York Museum gardens which looked fabulous with all the tulips in bloom. We also walked along the River Ouse for a couple of miles.
We still had to do a bit of shopping, from the oldest shopping street in Europe, the Shambles, to the more modern shopping areas and large department stores.
History is everywhere and it’s easy to see why York is such a tourist hot spot. We’ll be back again before too long. Here are a few photos from this latest visit…
