This week’s letter for Frizztext’s A-Z archive photo challenge is Y. Last winter I had the chance to visit some friends in York. Here are some of my photos of this charming city. Now I need to go back during the warmer months and see the difference.

Love these old buildings
Me too 🙂
I love these buildings, but never actually been to York.. thanks for share. 😉
YORK – a charming city, indeed – and charming ruins (img 034) too!
I loved the atmosphere there…charming is a great description.
Great photos of these buildings.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Hey, I recognize those places from Daniel’s pictures :). I would love to go there!!
Let me know if you do! I owe you a pint–or half pint 🙂
Oooh, I will definitely remember that!!! 🙂
Please do!!! Put it in a file or something.
Oh, you’re right on the ball today aren’t you?! LOL. I will enter it right away in my “to do” list on my iPhone which will automatically sync to my iPad and my laptop. How’s that for organized?!? 🙂
I’m sorry, can you run that by me again…I got lost with “to do” list.
Those words scared you didn’t they? Be honest now! I must admit, out of everyone on WordPress You make me laugh the most!!
Ah what a nice comment and boy do I feel the pressure now!!!! I’ve always aspired to be organized and that’s about as far as I get to that aspiration.
Very well done as I had a difficult time picking my favorite!
now I also want to go and visit this charming city
I hope you do!
So much history there… just look at those ruins and the tiny cobblestone streets.
It was like traveling in a time machine…such a cool place to visit.
I love the architecture of them and also these typical streets too. Wonderful entry and photographs. Thank you dear TBM, love, nia
Beautiful pictures TBM.
I LOVED to visit York. I lived in Leeds for a few years and it was a quick train ride away. I thought it was best in the winter with the festivities and warmth of the buildings. Make sure you walk the walls if you go back, that was definitely one of the coolest bits!
I would love to walk the walls. We didn’t get a chance that day. I still haven’t been to Leeds, but we have a friend there that we want to visit.
You should definitely check it out – Kirkstall Abbey is nice and the University has some nice hidden areas (as does Headingly).
Thanks…we were talking this weekend about making time to see our friends so I’ll keep these places in mind.
I just love the old architecture as well as the old ruins in your last photo! Awesome! Great “Y” photos for the challenge.
The ruins were so much fun to see and I was happy that it was a rainy day. It added to the atmosphere.
What a beautiful city! Love the pictures!
Thanks…I was really happy while wandering through York. It was all so beautiful.
How pretty… I would so love to go back to the UK and travel from top to bottom.
Well now you have give me an idea 🙂
Beautiful!!!! I would love to visit York someday – sooooo many places to see in the UK!!! 🙂 **
I know…I don’t want to miss anything, but I know I will. It is impossible to take it all in.
York is a beautiful city in all seasons. Love your photos.
I’m hoping to visit this summer if time allows.
I loved York when I visited there…more than London actually
York is so quaint and wonderful.
I agree! The place looks great indeed.
PS: I enjoyed Boston. 🙂 Now in DC. 🙂
DC is a fantastic town! Hope you are having fun!
Great shot! a city so foreign to mine 🙂
It was like stepping back in time.
Very envious! Love watching your travels. Even though I feel like I’m missing out!
I know how you feel, when I read about other people’s travels I get jealous. But I do enjoy hearing about other parts of the world and other adventures.
Been there, loved York. Want to go back, who knows when!…
I travelled back in time with your pictures, thank you TBM.
There’s a missing photo though. I missed the Shambles in your York post.
I’m not sure I took a photo of that part. We had three little ones with us that day and it was pouring rain. The little ones and rain were causing some difficulties and we had to go home early since one of the kids fell into a huge puddle and it was freezing out. We didn’t want her to get sick. I think I’ll be back in York later this summer and I’ll try to fix the problem 🙂
I’ll be waiting 🙂
It’s not easy to travel with kids without rain… can’t imagine with rain.
I’m not used to being around kids so I found it all pretty amusing. One got stuck in a tree, even though he could get down and another fell in a puddle. All in an hour. Parents are amazing.
York is on my wish list and you’ve just reminded me of why I want to go, thank you!
I hope you do…it is lovely. I’m sure they have some tearooms for you.
