York - a beautiful and very visitable city!

Spent two full days with a friend in York, staying overnight. Had been before, but was reminded what a lovely and very accessible city it is. Really good historic sightseeing opportunities, plus the variety of small independent shops make it a great place to visit, especially in December when the Christmas markets are on.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The 'quaintness' of the streets and the easiness of getting around the centre - by walking everywhere!

A Fantastic place to stay!

York is a fantastic place to visit for all ages to visit. So many interesting places of interest ranging from museums,restuarants,lovely shops and haunted pubs! The people of York are extremely friendly and I very much enjoyed chatting my way around the shops! I would definately recommend the Ghost Hunt of York - this was my second time on this tour and it is hilarious! If you are looking for a good giggle rather than a guided tour this is the tour for you. I havent laughed so much for ages! Also recommend shopping in Stonegate - particularly Saffrons where the shop keepers were lovely! A meal at Delrios at Micklegate is also recommended - the Italian food was to die for and the service was brilliant! Had an amazing time!

The best thing about my stay was ...

The people!
