Weekend away in York

We have had a super weekend away in York. We stayed in a super B&B. Our huge room overlooked the garden so we watched some squirrels playing rough and tumble one morning and the birds on the feeders.  The B&B, although not in the city centre,  it was on one of the many park and ride routes with buses every 10 mins. Breakfast was yummy too!
 It is a beautiful city with a  myriad of tiny streets so even with a map, and a sat nav app on our ipad we often found ourselves walking in the wrong direction to get back to the bus stop! Lots of different shops and I visited Duttons for Buttons, which my sewing friends have raved about, but I was a  bit disappointed! My little shop I go to in my home town in Porthcawl had a better selection of buttons! But we did get quite a few Christmas presents and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

On Sunday we went to Even Song at the Cathedral and it was so lovely, the choir singing, the organ and the atmosphere quite beautiful.
An amazing heavenly end to our weekend .
If you have the chance to visit York, do go, it will be worth it.

Sounds like you had a lovely break :)
I live in the South of UK and never really go up the country.. I am more of a European person!
York does sound lovely though.

Looks like you had a good time in York. I love York. I always just wander around the streets & find lots of lovely unusual shops. So many towns now are the same so York's a real treat.

I'm biased though I do like the Minster but I love Durham Cathedral! It's my favourite!

Love York and it's only an hour or so from us. The park & ride scheme is great - we never park in the city now.
Sounds like you've had a fabulous time.
