York

Recently, me and a good friend escaped for a few days to the wonderful little city of York. The cobbled streets and buildings full of character really make York a lovely place to visit, the minster by far is the most impressive of these buildings and that was our first port of call whilst strolling around. We then, of course, hit the shops. A night out was on the cards that night and the next morning began with a trip to York dungeons, I can confirm that the experience was terrifying, more so than I expected. I sound like a wimp but seriously, although it was so fun and the live actors were amazing, me and my friend clung on to each other the whole way, the dark is definitely not our favourite thing. We recovered with a pub lunch and strolled along the river, deciding to take a boat ride. Boat rides are my favourite thing so it was nice to relax before heading to a Pimms afternoon tea at a riverside bar, my first experience of afternoon tea and my first experience of Pimms wasn't too bad at all. After sitting chatting for a good while it was time to say goodbye to York and catch the train, which could've done without the major storm and delays. Overall, a fun filled two days indeed.

  2. I hate Dungeons too! When I was 15 we went on a school trip to the London Dungeons and I spent the whole time there hiding in the gift shop!
