The land of gothic cathedrals, cream teas, and cobbled streets: part 2

After visiting Oxford and the Lake District we boarded a train to York.

We only planned for one night in York, however our time seemed even more truncated due to underestimating travel time and Sunday's earlier-than-normal closings. We arrived late afternoon from Windermere just as businesses were closing. The next morning we had to catch our train only one hour after businesses reopened, thus we mostly wandered the historic streets window shopping and snapping a few pictures. Note to future self: don't travel on Sundays.

The weather was gorgeous as usual on our trip which led to some vibrant pictures of York Minster.
We walked the ancient Medieval street The Shambles. The houses lean over the cobbled road.
The Tour de France had recently passed through York, so remnants of bright yellow decorations still lingered.
As with so much of England there were lovely views.
Next post will be London!
