A Birthday Trip to York 2018

The day has gone by in a flash. We were picked up by Dave’s parents to spend the day in York. Going with them meant I saw a different part of York I haven’t seen before.

There was The Shakespeare Rose Theatre company starting performances; with food and drink stalls. We didn’t stop for a show but did a drink. It was a nice setup. They were making it an authentic experience as possible. I believe they’re gonna be there till the end of August.

Right next door there was an English Heritages Clifford’s Tower. I had never been up before and taking advantage of the membership cards we went up to the top. It had lovely views and could see the companies tent from above.

Next, we went to the riverside. We had a ride on the CityCruises that run regularly. Again this is something I hadn’t done before. It was lovely seeing York from a different perspective.

We had a wander around, stopping for a sit-down and a drink every so often; it has been very hot. A lovely change. Although I have been naughty and not put any sunscreen on.

I got to see inside Betty’s for the first time too.

At the end of the evening we had dinner at Carluccios. I had a wondering meal and an amazing day out.

Time has flown but it was worth it.
