During the second week of her visit we headed to York for the day. York is a beautiful, historic small town only 30 minutes from Leeds, so the short train journey was much appreciated by this point! :)
I haven't been to York since I was about 10 years old, possibly on a school trip to the Jorvik Viking centre and even then, I still didn't remember much else of York, apart from the smell (in the Viking center!) but when we arrived, I really was surprised at just how beautiful the city was.
The first thing we did was a boat trip down the River Ouse , followed by eating, wandering, a visit to the Jorvik center (still smells) a walk to the York Minster and a little visit to the Shambles, an area of old streets & shops.
All in all, I really loved the day in York, more than I expected. Very relaxing!
These guys were amazing. We ended the day watching them, a few songs in they had a huge crowd.
I recorded a little bit of their version of Cee-Lo's - Forget You.
Hope you like it! :)
