York- Travel Up North

Last month I visited York and have already wrote a blog post about it previously. York is such a great city though that it needed to be included in this series.

On the City Wall



York has fairly good transport networks and is easy to get to by train.

By train it is:

From London: 1 hour and 53 minutes

From Leeds: 30 minutes

From Manchester: 1 hour 18 minutes

From Edinburgh: 2 hours 24 minutes

If you are wanting to get there cheaper you can also go by bus using Megabus or National Express.

Places to Eat

Now if you’ve seen my twitter you will see that we went to the York roast Co and had a Yorkshire Pudding Wrap which was incredible and you need to try!

We also went for Dinner at The Cosy Club.

Things to do

York Minister: Is one of the largest Gothic Cathedrals in Northern Europe and is one of the most popular things to visit in York. If you have chance not only go into the cathedral climb to the top and you get a great view of York!

York Chocolate Story: Now this is something that I have never had the chance to do. I don’t know how because I love Chocolate! But it’s a guided tour though Chocolate making and about facts about York’s best Chocolate products like the Chocolate Orange and the Kitkat.

Ghost Walk: Now if you aren’t a fan of scary things or ghost then this probably isn’t for you. But it is really interesting and fun to do if you are interested in Ghosts.

The Shambles: The Shambles are great not only for the fact that it’s so beautiful and great to take photos of. There is also quite a few great shops to visit. If you are a Harry Potter fan there is the The Shop that must not be Named, my favourite The Fudge Kitchen ( Which is a must to visit) and many others.

The Shambles

There are so many other great places to visit in York like The Dungeons, The Jorvik Viking Centre, City Walls and many others.

Hopefully this has inspired you to visit York.

Next post will be Newcastle.
