This past weekend, we layered up and set off for the town of York. It started off as a damp morning, but we fueled up at a coffee shop before heading into the York Minister Cathedral.
The cathedral was so gorgeous. Most of us got tickets to go to the top of the Cathedral and after climbing 275 steep steps, the view was gorgeous. I really get blown away everyday living in this country.
If you’re looking for things to do in York, I would for sure recommend stopping by and climbing to the top if you’re not afraid of heights! If you want to know more, visit their website here! for times to visit, how to book and other questions you might have.
York also has this adorable lanes called “the shambles” which looks a lot like Diagon alley from Harry Potter. Like almost every city I’ve visited so far in England, there were street performers as well. And they were amazing.
As we walked around York, we also found the Yorkshire soap shop, which smelled so great and the soaps were shaped like cupcakes and cakes.
We stopped at York’s famous lunch spot Little Betty’s, which was worth the wait and will be in a different blog post, because it was that good! The day in York started out bright and early and rainy but it turned out to be a perfect sunny day at the end of it.
We ended our trip with a quick stop to a chocolate shop. I got a dark chocolate belgian square, I loved it.
