York

York Minster and Old York. Wonderfully atmospheric image of old York, as a Winter’s day turns to night.

York has too many guide books for its own good, and one of the worst things about this albeit stunning city is that too often it clings on to visitors at the expense of the rest of this stunning county – there is massively more to Yorkshire than York.

Ye Olde Minster Stone

One thing I will recommend before you leave, is the tour of York Minster, which, unlike city’s overrun with modern boxchitecture, offers a great view of what ye olde roofcapes used to be in the days of Mary Poppins, before they became somewhere to dump the air conditioning unit.
