I went when my son was a baby, but, couldn't be bothered doing much with a baby and a pram. I promised him that one day I would take him back there and by god he has been waiting. Well, he is accompanying me on saturday. Finally!  Laughing
Lizzie

Oh how lovely.....I have not been to York.....take loads of pics..............if you would be so kind......York Minister is awesome I believe..............

Might have to add it to my ever increasing list of places to visit........... Laughing
Barbie

Lizzie I am sooooooooo looking forwards to this trip. I've been to quite a few areas of Yorkshire, towns, villages and up hill and down dale. Just been checking it out on google, lots to do and see!
Alice

How nice Barbie, you will have a lovely time with your son and the weather should be good.
Barbie

Yes Alice the weather....that s*n had better NOT dare disappear.....hmmmm...
Alice

Did you have a nice time in York, Barbie?
Barbie

Hi Alice. Yes thanks I did. In fact, it was amazing! What a place! Not done all we wanted and so, we are going back again soon.  Very Happy  I recommend it.
Barbie

A few shots of York.













Barbie

In the museum....too much to post, so just doing an odd few. Smile










Barbie

The Shambles. Some of these half timber buildings have been refaced, and rendered, so the lovely Tudor style has disappeared, I would think it is because they were going too much into disrepair. Sad but necessary.







Barbie

Nope, I didn't go on it..... Confused



Yes I did have a whopper of an ice cream from this van... Laughing







Lizzie

Absolutely stunning..thanks so much for taking and sharing them with us......I really need to go there now..... Cool
Barbie

The castle prison is amazing. Some it museum stuff they have preserved but there are still cells to be seen off the exercise court.

See the trap door.....


that is the gallows above this room. Once the prisoner was hung, he was cut down and.....

their new home was waiting.... Confused


Other cells....



I hated this one, was creepy cold....

Fab pic's Barbie! Did you get the chance to visit "Clifford's" tower?
Barbie

Yep......by time got to the top of the steps my ice cream was melting, made a right pig of myself! Then, and only then, it stated nearly a fiver to get in. I refused as I'd spent a lot of money doing other things and at least they were worth it.


Barbie

This is my son's pic of the steps up



Although not a bright sunny day, it was really warm out yesterday but these pics make it look like it was dreary. It was perfect weather really, not too hot to do so much walking about.
MOJO

Great pic's,though a sad part of our history!
Scousemouse

Great pics Barbie making me want to visit now Rolling Eyes
Alice

Lovely pics Barbie, I never went to the museum during our 2 night stay several years ago.
Barbie

Thanks Alice, there are numerous museums of different sorts. You need to be there longer than a day trip. Sooooo much to see.

Barbie, thanks for sharing your day in York with us via your photos, they are great as too York itself looks. . Such a lot to see of interest there. I've always associated it with the Romans and the Railway museum, but as you have shown there is much much more. Ta !

oh ! I nearly forgot to say,, my fave pic of the collection was the restored Ice cream Van, it was fantastic
Tony Riviera

Great photos Barbie. I've not been there myself for ages. it's a lovely city
Barbie

It is beautiful. I am going back sometime soon, maybe before this summer is over Smile
