Postcards from York

A few weeks ago we explored the historical city of York. It’s a city which has often dipped on and off my list of cities to explore in the UK. It’s impressive heritage and cobbled streets have always enticed me. So when we decided to make a whistle-stop, day trip with our friend Catalin, I was excited to see what was in store.

On the way to York, we were met every couple of miles with sunshine, clouds, rain and even snow. Throughout the entire day we experienced the four seasons every couple of minutes. After living in Manchester for a fair few years, I thought I had experienced the erratic weather but nothing prepared us for what we got caught under!

I’m going to keep this post fairly light in terms of text as I think the photographs really speak for themselves. York is a beautiful city. I was amazed and simply adored the classic architecture of the city. Down every cosy and cobbled street, past every traditional shop, I felt truly charmed by York. The largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe, York Minster, imposed the city’s surrounding landscape. Whatsmore, the views along the city’s walls were so picturesque. It felt like we were looking at a film set.

After a day spent exploring and ducking away from the hail and rain showers, we finished off our adventure with a well deserved ice cream; before braving the icy motorway on our way home!
