Last Wednesday, to cheer myself up after the accident, my little sister Kaila, best friend Kerry and I, decided to have a girly shopping/touristy day out in York, one of my favorite citys.
Just like bona-fide tourists, we (ok, I) took lots of photos, and visited all the tourist attractions, (because you just HAVE to!) such as Betty's Tearooms, the ruined castle/abbey (not too sure which!) and the markets
We passed the Jorvik Viking Centre, where we met two very friendly Vikings (both badly in need of Goks Fashion Fix!), onto The Golden Fleece Pub, reputedly THE most haunted pub in York! then I simply HAD to visit one of my favorite shops EVER - Cath Kidston!!
The show 'Most Haunted' hosted by Yvette Fielding actually filmed here!
I could live here and never leave!
How beautiful is Cath Kidston designs? I sadly had to stop taking photo's as I was getting funny looks from the staff :(
After shopping til we dropped, we stopped for a much needed caffeine fix ( and snack, because its rude not to!) at starbucks:
York is such a beautifil gothic-looking city, I adore the Tudor-style buildings, the walk-along Wall that surrounds York and the stunningly crooked Shambles and Little Shambles, the picturesque streets, that all contribute to make York one of the most visited Citys in Yorkshire.
I managed to spend lots of my Christmas money in the sales (and I bought lots of crafty bits for a project I have yet to post on, so watch out for that!) so all in all, I had a great day out!
Have you been to York? What is your favorite City?
