Daytrippin | York

So, it’s been a while. Again. I’ve been really bad at keeping up on blogging. Life just…sort of, got in the way. I had no motivation and no ideas on what to post. I just wasn’t feeling it. But I’ve been working hard on my instagram and I’ve found a “theme” I really like. So with that I thought I’d turn back to my little corner of the internet and jump right in…

York has been on my list of places to visit for ages. I’d heard so many good things about it, and for good reason. It’s a gorgeous city! Filled with narrow streets with cobbled roads, and more pubs than you can count – it’s the ideal place for a day trip. Or apparently, a hen/stag or even birthday do!

Of course you can’t visit York without hitting the typical tourist spots, so we jumped off the train and headed straight for York minister. It’s a seriously impressive building, with stunning architecture. We didn’t end up going inside (lol too skint) but there’s plenty to admire from the outside, that’s it’s worth the visit.

Next we wandered round to the museum gardens, strolled along the canal, and stopped for a bite to eat. With so many cute cafes, you’re really spoiled for choice on where to eat, but I’d heard good things about the Cosy Club so we headed there for a late lunch.

I opted for a vegan Asian burger with sweet potato fries (which were incredible!) with a side of a big gin & lemonade. The vibe is seriously super cool in this place and the food was delicious. 10/10 would recommend.

We were so lucky with the weather, considering how cold and snowy it’s been lately – I was even able to wander around in just my leather jacket. York is great for just strolling aimlessly and taking in the sights. I especially loved the shambles with its diagon alley-esque feels and 3 Harry Potter stores! I also really liked walking along the wall and seeing some different sights of the city.

We finished off the day with a visit to Brew and Brownie for some coffee and Easter inspired brownies. Which was the perfect end to a perfect day really. York was stunning and I’m looking forward to going back again in the summer.
