A Chilly Sunday In York

It’s been so long since I visited York so last Sunday I decided to visit the beautiful city.

I was working late the night before so I unfortunately didn’t get there until lunch time but I still had the most amazing day.

We parked in the Designer Outlet park and ride and took the bus into the city. Parking is free, you just have to pay for the bus which costs £3.10 for a return, a pretty reasonable price.

The first place we hit was The Shambles. It’s been years since I last walked along this medieval street and I was ecstatic to see it is now home to not one but three Harry Potter shops!!!!

I spent a lot of time here.


The weather was quite chilly outside so we skipped walking along the wall and castle gardens and instead wandered around all the little gift and vintage shops.

One of the many things I love about York is all the old English pubs they have (most of which are dog friendly) so we had a quick lunch in one of these.

To round off the day we did York’s Chocolate Story. We had a guided tour about the history of chocolate in York, got to try some samples and even made chocolate lollies.

Definitely worth a visit if you’re ever in York and the weather is rubbish.

Sadly, the day was starting to end and we had to leave as the park and ride doesn’t run that late on Sundays.

I had such a fun day and will definitely be returning when the weathers a but warmer!

Hope you liked this post

Bye for now
