Not quite on the doorstep, but only a quick 40 minute drive away is the gorgeous city of York. It was hubby's suggestion for a day trip, so off we went.
Our morning started with breakfast in Betty's - a bit expensive, but now that there are only 2 of us on our days out, it actually feels affordable!!!
York is a beautiful old city - full of fabulous shops, cobbled streets, and amazing buildings. The Shambles is its most famous cobbled old street.
It was difficult to get a good photo of it as the sky was very grey and cloudy, although it was nice and warm. A lot of my photos came out fairly dark.
We had a lovely wander around the streets. Come and have a wander with me.
York has some really well preserved buildings from as far back as the Roman times.
I'll show you more of York later in the week.
