YORK, ENGLAND

 

York was founded by the ancient Romans. There you can explore York Minster,  the 13th-century Gothic cathedral.

The City is surrounded by walls, and the river Ouse flows through the city of York and the towns of Selby and Goole before joining with the River Trent.  Great to walk the streets. Tons of shops and some of the oldest, haunted pubs.

The Golden Fleece Inn has rooms upstairs and a 16th century pub downstairs that is known to be the most haunted public house in York.  It’s quite dark inside and the whole building is on a slant. It’s known as the pub on stilts as it has no real foundation.

We met this regular at the bar who’s been there since the pub opened in the 1500’s.

Lots of great laneways full of shops and pubs and so many delicious meat pies and pastry.

Had the greatest,  English meal and of course a few pints at the York Arms.  A full plate of tender roast beef and yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes,  with lots of vegetables.

In the 1500’s there were lots of small people and Clint had to do a lot of ducking.

The River Ouse is beautiful to walk along.  It was a gorgeous day in York.
