Hi, and congratulations on your anniversary.

Bettys tearooms are lovely and you can book (if you want to avoid the queues) a champagne afternoon tea (bookings only taken for a Saturday or Sunday)..


I go to Bettys a fair amount (there are several branches within easy reach of me) and yet it always feels special and as if we are having a treat.

Worth looking at the York theatre website to see if there's anything that takes your fancy.


York Minster is a must see - again check to see if there are any concerts on when you are there. It's an incredible building but to listen to beautiful music in it is an amazing experience.


Loads of museums if that's what you enjoy. The Castle Museum is particularly good with an excellent Victorian Street, very moving and cleverly done prison cells complete with holograms, and (our favourite) a 60's exhibition.


If you have a car then maybe a drive out to the Moors for a long walk, and take lovely food for a picnic (might have to eat in the car if cold!).

Our favourite restaurant in York is a tapas one (Ambiente) which probably isn't very romantic but I've been married much, much longer than a year!


Hope this kicks off some research.

Blue Bicycle would be my favourite romantic place to eat.
