TRAVEL TUESDAY: PART 8: YORK, ENGLAND

A not so detailed list about one of the UK's greatest cities! I've only spent a day in York and I would love to visit it again. Here are a few highlights of my trip:
  1. Walled city
    It was like stepping back into history in some parts of the city. A visit to York Minster is a MUST! It is featured in some scenes in "Elizabeth" (1998) starring Cate Blanchett, Christopher Eccleston and Joseph Fiennes. 😍😍😍
  2. Vikings!
    After the Romans, the city was occupied by the Danes. The Viking influence can be seen all over the city and there is a fantastic visitor attraction of a mock-up Viking city. Sadly, it is closed right now due to extensive flooding last Christmas. 😢
  3. Best tea shop EVER???
    You CANNOT go to York and not have tea and cakes at Bettys! Established in 1919, Bettys baked goods are all handmade and are just DELICIOUS!
  4. Mmmm..!
