A couple of weeks ago after work, we drove to York with my husband to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
York is located in North Yorkshire in England. It is a historic city that has a rich heritage and was part of major political events in England throughout the history of UK. It is also a popular tourist destination for millions and, nowadays, tourism is an important element of the local economy.
The city was founded by the Romans. In the Middle Ages, York grew as a major trading centre and became the capital of the northern province of the Church of England. In the 19th century, York became a known hub of the railway network and a confectionery manufacturing centre.
The city offers a wealth of historic attractions and I would definitely recommend a visit to:
- York Castle Museum
- The Shambles
- York City Walls
- York Minster Cathedral
- Yorkshire Museum and Museum Gardens
- Jorvik Viking Centre
During our stay we had some great meals but I will review them in another post.
If you consider visiting York then Booking.com has a range of great properties where you can relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing. In addition, if you book your accommodation via this referral link, you’ll get £20 in cash.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post!
