Thank you for your advice of places to visit whilst in York. We had a lovely day.
In the evening went for a few drinks at the Last Drop Inn and The Bluebell, both great pubs and then finished off with a lovely Thai meal on Fossgate.
I just wished I had known to book online in advance for the Tower at York Minster Cathedral as it was fully booked up. I had just presumed all I had to do was pay for a ticket and could wander up to the top of York Minster Cathedral. I didn’t realise they restricted the numbers so much. Well I’m sure I’ll be back in York again and will go up the tower then.
