Travel with Me / 24 Hours in York

England, York Guide (B): Travel with Me / 24 Hours in York

For our next stop on our big adventure, we needed to choose a city to split up the journey between Watford (where we stayed to do the Harry Potter tour at Warner Bros. Studios) and England’s Lake District. We were totally overwhelmed with the number of options, but we ended up picking York because it sounded like a good place to stay for one night. It was a great decision! In fact, we found ourselves wishing we had more time to explore all of the the historical sites and to indulge in meals at the numerous delicious gastropubs. York is definitely underrated, and it should be on any UK itinerary!

One of my favorite things about York is that it is packed full of history (including Viking and Roman), yet at the same time, very compact and walkable. This combination gives you loads to do without the hassle of dealing with transportation.

It was raining straight through the twenty-four hours we were there. We did our best to not let that affect our time there, and I think we did a decent job. In the descriptions below, I have underlined the attractions, restaurants, and things to do that I suggest adding to your one-day itinerary in York based on my experience. ......
