Yorkshire Adventure 2013 edition. York

Friday, March 15, 2013

Hello Lovelies, 

I've booked a week off work and will be spending it in Yorkshire. We've been going to Skipdale (Skipton) for as long as I can remember as my Granparents have a caravan there. 

A couple of years ago my parents took it over and as I couldn't get time off over my Birthday I decided to take Easter off. I've got a few things on this year so didn't think I could afford an overseas holiday (I am going to Berlin in August) 

Over the last few visits to Skipton, we've been trying to be touristy as we always stick to Skitpon or Keithley and don't venture much further.

Last year I went on my first Skipton Canal Boat tour (this was only about £3 and is for an hour) you go from the canal basin to the back of the Castle and back)

Skipton is also a great base to explore other places. Last year we made the most of the train and went to Leeds. This year we are being slightly more adventurous. 

York is our Yorkshire City of choice this time. We've even booked two nights in a Hotel so we can explore properly. 

We are staying in the Queens Hotel  which is right on the river and looks to be in a good location. 

Do you have any recommendations? I'm hoping to go to the Castle Museum. 

What is a must do? What should I leave out? Places to Eat and Drink?

  1. I always end up in the Railway Museum when I go to York, I'm not sure why. However, I am looking forward to seeing you when you're over in Skipton :) x

    1. Thats the only museum I can remember going in. I went years ago and we had took my grans dog with us so me and my dad went in while my mum waited outside.
