Top 7 Things To Do In York

York, my favourite UK city I have ever visited. Very quirky, pretty and packed full of things to do. Here are 7 things to do when in York; 1. The Shambles and Market  One of my favourite parts of York! Visiting The Shambles is like taking a step back in time, such quirky buildings with even quirkier shops, even some with names i shall not mention. The Shambles need to be at the top of your list when visiting York.  Harry Potter Fans, I hope you got that One!  Nestled into the Shambles you will find the Market, there are some really interesting independent stall holders worth visiting, especially the Baklava one!  2. York Minster  A city with no cathedral? Who cares? York Minster is such a grand building with so much detail within its architecture. You can either take in the view from the outside or get tickets to explore inside.  3. Shopping  From the quirky retailers in the Shambles to high Street shops at Coppergate

Top 5 Things to do in Knaresborough

Knaresborough is very much one of Yorkshires hidden gem towns!  Here are 5 things I did when visiting Knaresborough for the day and would highly reccomend you checking out.  1. Check out all of the quirky art On every street in the town there Is some quirky art to see. 2. Ice Cream By The River Take a seat by the river Nidd and enjoy the views of willow trees flowing over the river, and first time rowers getting to grips on how to row! People watching is very interesting at times. 3. Chapel of Our Lady of The Crag Built into the sandtone cliffs, this Chapel has been a place of worship since the 15th Century. The Chapel is now looked after by the Chapel of Our Lady of the Crag Trust and us free to enter. One of the volunteers of the trust even offered us a courgette, never been offered one before!  There are several caves you can visit in Knaresborough such as St Roberts and the House in the cave all for free.
