This week I took a small trip to York!
Initially we hoped to go abroad but I think we left it too late to book anywhere decent...
I thought I'd share a few photos of my trip ^^
(please note... I am awful at taking photographs ^^;)
First up, here is where I stayed - the Guy Fawkes Inn. A really pretty place with an awesome cooked breakfast :) When we arrived on Wednesday there was a man playing the piano where the man on the bike is. I could hear a familiar singing voice...it was only Jamie Cullen jazz singer :O
On Wednesday I forgot to take photographs of most places we visited :/ We visited the York Dungeon, the Yorvik Viking Center (very cool) and Yorvik Heroes. We also had a walk around Fairfax house. I did get some photos from the Merchant Adventurers' Hall..
In the evening we went on the York Ghost Hunt with a very snappily dressed tour guide.
On Thursday we were up early to admire the beautiful York Minster *___*
After that was Clifford's Tower, York Castle Museum (not a museum about castles *grrr*) and then the Roman Bath - the guide for the Roman Bath was a really nice chap who knew his stuff and was so enthusiastic :D
I shall finish with a photo of a street called the 'Shambles'...
More streets should be like this :)
I hope you've enjoyed the photos from my trip. I know it's not cross stitch but I wanted to share my excitement :3
** There is a Crafters Trail that you can do in York if you ever visit - you can pick up map in the Visitors Center that takes you around the craft shops of York ^^ **
