From walking the city walls, to the beauty of York Minster and the old-world charm of the tearooms and shops, it’s time for the ultimate weekend in York in 2019!
I’ve just got back from a whistle-stop tour of three beautiful English cities – Durham, York and Lincoln. I’ve written all about my trip, but I felt like I had SO much to share from York, that I’ve decided to write an entire post about the city. Out of the three, I think it’s the best option for a weekend break.
There’s lots to see and do, a lovely buzz, and tonnes of cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from too. It also surprised me just how easy it is to get to York from London. The LNER train to York takes under two hours, and once there, the station is nice and close to the action.
York is compact enough not to need a car, and large enough to keep discovering new things. I was only there a few days, and no doubt there is SO much I missed… but, I think this guide to spending the weekend in York is a great place to start.
