York and Yorkminster

On our recent trip to the UK we had the chance to stay overnight in York where nei­ther of us had been.  It’s in the north of Eng­land near­er the East side of the coun­try.  We drove over the Pen­nines from the West en route down from Scot­land; great fun as you have some ele­va­tion gain as well as loads of sheep and moors to look at.

York is a great town which real­ly deserves a two night stay at least to see all it has to offer.  For­tu­nate­ly we were stay­ing only a mile or so from the town cen­tre and were able to walk to see the sights, in par­tic­u­lar, York­min­ster, the cathe­dral which rivals any­thing we’ve seen any­where.  As usu­al we did man­age to get lost on our way back to our digs, but found our way with help from some friend­ly locals😀.

Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire

En route back from Scot­land to the south of Eng­land we stopped in at Ange­sey Abbey for a look around and some lunch.  It’s a Nation­al Trust prop­er­ty and being mem­bers assures us a free entry and a great restau­rant🍷. (If you are vis­it­ing the UK it’s well worth join­ing since you only need vis­it 6 or so prop­er­ties to get your mon­ey back).

A few pho­tos from the walk around the prop­er­ty.  I’m doing this from my phone while wait­ing for Rita, so there may be a few dupli­cates or errors but I’ll fix these in due course & expand text soon😀
