I haven't visited the charming city of York in a number of years so I was excited to see this grand city for a day!
Arriving early in the morning, we spent a few hours walking around Christmas and The Shamble Markets. These were located in impressive streets that reminded me of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter. The markets truly got me in a festive mood. After the markets we had pre booked York Dungeon so headed here. The dungeons lasted for around 90 minutes and I felt it was the most perfect way to learn about York, with fun facts, history and also a good laugh. However please be aware there is a chance you might get picked to join in with the actors, so it might not be for everyone.
We went for a little walk to see the beautiful York Minster where a wedding was taking place! The building is lovely and the architecture is impressive. I want to go inside next time!
Then we went to an Italian near York Minster called La Vecchia Scuola. I loved the food, especially dessert, best cheesecake ever! The atmosphere, decoration and service of this lovely restaurant. I would recommend La Vecchia Scuola.
Finally we went to the Grand Opera House where we watched Agatha Christie And Then There Was None. The show was breathtaking and I adored every second. I cherished watching my friend's reactions as she had never seen or read the book so she wasn't sure what to expect. The Grand Opera House is a lovely theatre and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Overall we had an enjoyable and joyous day and I would highly recommend a day in York if you ever get a chance.
