A Couple of Days in York

I've visited York many many times. It is only around an hour away from where I live by train and is the most quaint and picturesque city (you can see some previous visits here, here and here). I usually make a trip just before Christmas but this year my friend and I decided to plan a trip to Edinburgh as our pre-Christmas treat for a change (so that will be coming up in a post at some point in December). Which left me pining for York somewhat, so I ended up booking a short two day trip for my boyfriend and I. We did a lot of walking around the city's shops and cafes, and making the essential trip into Betty's Tea Room but mostly enjoying our most amazing hotel suite. It most definitely deserves a post of it's own, so I'll show you the hotel in another post. In the meantime here are a few pictures from our trip.

  1. oh, I love Yorkshire :0 I lived in York & Harrogate when I was too young to appreciate Betty's but now I make regular trips to Grannies house in Northallerton and always go for tea at Betty's :)

  2. I love York. It was my university town and I was just there this we for a little pre christmas shopping trip. Your photos are beautiful. I'm so going to edinburgh just before christmas too. Unfortunately I'm not staying at the hitel du vin this time though. X

  3. i've never been but it looks like such a beautiful city to have a little weekend break in, lucky you booking a trip to york and one to edinburgh as well!
