Y is for York

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.

    Very well done as I had a difficult time picking my favorite!

    now I also want to go and visit this charming city

  8. So much history there… just look at those ruins and the tiny cobblestone streets.

  9. niasunset says:

    I love the architecture of them and also these typical streets too. Wonderful entry and photographs. Thank you dear TBM, love, nia

    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!

    • TBM says:

      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.

      • Geoff W says:

        You should definitely check it out – Kirkstall Abbey is nice and the University has some nice hidden areas (as does Headingly).

      • TBM says:

        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.

  14. zelmare says:

    How pretty… I would so love to go back to the UK and travel from top to bottom.

  15. Beautiful!!!! I would love to visit York someday – sooooo many places to see in the UK!!! 🙂 **

    York is a beautiful city in all seasons. Love your photos.

  17. Jo Bryant says:

    I loved York when I visited there…more than London actually

  18. Myra GB says:

    I agree! The place looks great indeed.
    PS: I enjoyed Boston. 🙂 Now in DC. 🙂

  19. Novroz says:

    Great shot! a city so foreign to mine 🙂

  20. Very envious! Love watching your travels. Even though I feel like I’m missing out!

    • TBM says:

      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.

  21. rossanaf says:

    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.

    • TBM says:

      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 🙂

      • rossanaf says:

        I’ll be waiting 🙂
        It’s not easy to travel with kids without rain… can’t imagine with rain.

      • TBM says:

        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.

  22. York is on my wish list and you’ve just reminded me of why I want to go, thank you!
