ONE DAY VISITING YORK, UK

York, nice small town in the UK with many picturesque spots to discover. Perfect if you want to jump back in the past for one day. I found it to be such a lovely place in which the contrast created by colourful and vibrant flowers against bricks and stone-made walls is just perfect.

P.S. The first picture was taken in the “York Explore Learning Library Learning Centre”. Just outside St Mary’s Abbey getting into the town I saw this library and why not, I popped in with any expectation and ta-da! It ended up being the best discovery of that day!

  • ST MARY’S ABBEY

The first stop coming from the train station which turns into a kind of door that welcomes you in and invites you to discover the town. The ruins are just beautiful and set in the middle of a pleasant and quite park. Looking at them you cannot avoid thinking about how long they have been standing and how many historical events they have been through.

 

  • YORK MINSTER

One of the largest Gothic Cathedrals in Europe and probably the most popular landmark in York. Next time I’ll make sure to visit it even inside, I’ve seen pictures and it seems to be definitely worthy.

  • CLIFFORD’S TOWER

Steep steps to climb but nice view from the top, good to have an overview of York’s roofs.
