Living in England for almost 6 years and never visiting the North was something I wanted to change a lot. I heard people from North are nicer and kinder than people from South, they have a different accent and I might have problems to understand what they are trying to say. My English friends described York as a very nice city with nice countryside which is worth to visit. Even if they have not been there before.
With my previous experience, I did not want to put any hopes up so I went for this trip slightly unprepared with not making any proper plans of places to visit until my arrival.
York is based in Northeast of England with a long history e.g. Roman walls along the city. Don’t worry, I won’t give you a lesson from history 🙂
WALK BY THE RIVER
WHERE TO EAT
A great place with a cozy atmosphere where you can rest your feet while having a great meal with drinks. Just be aware of the breakfast menu. No chance to order lunch before noon 🙂
I hope you enjoyed photos, go there and visit those places you have just seen, let the history vibe soak in under your skin because it has its own magic.
If you’d like a special dessert, why don’t you head off to Shambles Market? 🙂
Tip 1: York seems to be really far from London on the map. To be honest, you can be there under 2 hours taking a direct train with first stop in York 🙂
Tip 2: Buy a train ticket ahead as much as you can to save up £. Otherwise you’ll end up spending £££ just on the travel cost.
Have you ever been to York? Did you enjoy it? What other places in North England would you recommend?
