As a born and bred Northerner, I’m going to wax lyrical about one of the prettiest and most historical cities Britain has to offer -
Never mind the main streets like Coney Street and its high street chains, if you are visiting York see it properly – take yourself down the old fashioned, cobbled streets such as the Shambles dating back to the 1400′s for a multitude of specialist shops and bakeries.
Take a walk along the City Walls, where you can see sights such as the historic York Minster. Don’t forget to explore down all the little snickleways too… you never know what you’ll find…
There’s so much more I could say about York, but being confined to 80 words I’ll have to stop there!
