York is by far one of the prettiest Cities in England (Or at least in our eyes!). So here are our top picks of things to do in York UK!!!
Chocolate… what more can I say! We went in 2014 just before Easter and it was great. For online prices at £11.50 per adult or £39.95 for a family of 4, it’s a relatively cheap afternoon. You get a good look at the history of chocolate, get a few tasters and even get to make your own bar! Located near ‘The Shambles’ it makes for a great day for the chocoholics out there.
Most cities have these opportunities and I strongly believe this is one thing everyone must do at least once, and we did ours in York! Yes it’s touristy, yes it’s paying street artists (something not everyone agrees with, I know) but to this day it is our most unusual piece of memorabilia that we have. We watched the artist for a bit first to get a feel of who he was – it’s quite personal having someone draw you, but once we were seated the man felt us feel really comfortable, and this was the result! We love it.
York Castle Museum
This is something we’ve done a few times over the years and was a favourite of mine when I was younger. It’s a great experience for children who go free with every paying adult (£10) and there’s plenty to see so make sure you put aside a good few hours. Learn about the history of England, and walk the replica old English Streets complete with old shops and even a little school!
Castle on the Hill
Yorks most iconic building dated back to the 19th century. Walk up the steps and take in the panoramic view from the top. It’s £5 for adults to enter the interior of the building, £13 for families. It won’t fill out a full day, but if you’re in york – it’s an absolute must.
