3 Days to see York
You've arrived in York and you have 3 days to capture the essence of the city - to see the sights, to have fun, to eat well and to take home some momentoes.
If the weather is kind, see York from the city walls. It's free to walk along the walls. You can get on and off at several key points. If you 're nosy, it's great to look into other people's back yards and gardens , including some pretty impressive ones belonging to the York MInster clergy . It'll take about an hour if you're quick, two if you dawdle. You pass close to several great eating-out streets - Gillygate, High Petergate, Walmgate and Micklegate .
York Minster is unmissable. It's only a couple of minutes walk from our apartments and it deserves at least half a day to take in some of its grandeur and beauty. Admission charges now apply unless you are attending a service. The medieval glass is wonderful and both the crypt and the tower are worth visiting.
Eating out in the evening makes it seem like a holiday for everyone. Goodramgate at the end of Ogleforth ofers a fantastic choice - Spanish tapas, Italian, Indian, Vegetarian, cosy bistros and friendly pubs.
The Castle Museum or The Yorkshire Museum are both excellent choices for all age groups.
A boat trip along the River Ouse is relaxing and informative. There is a choice of trips up or downstream and both are worth doing.
Enjoy the pretty shopping streets between Stonegate and The Shambles. There are plenty of high end fashion names amidst small independent shops. Betty's can be found at the foot of Stonegate and Little Betty's, which is less well known, is higher up near the MInster and every bit as nice. ( Often slightly less crowded.) If you go late in the afternoon, early evening, a high tea is served.
The Railway Museum has to be on everyone's 'must see' list. It is free to enter, but a contribution is requested. Once inside you'll see up- close the massive engines and the ongoing work preserving the rail legacy, so integral to the city of York. It is a brilliant place, with something new to look at every time you return.
If you decide on a Ghost Walk for the evening which explores the snickleways of York , then , as a complete contrast, an afternoon visit to one of York's lovely parks or gardens will serve as a perfect spot for a picnic and a well -earned rest .
