Northern Delights: Five Views of York

Next up in the series of Northern Delights is York. The city has most of the qualities visitors want in an historic destination: winding medieval streets, charming views, recognisable landmarks, and some interesting places to eat and drink.   It’s probably one of my favourite days out in the north, and on this occasion I walked part of the city walls for the first time.   Here are some views from the periphery of York’s former boundaries.

The beer garden of my favourite pub in York, Lamb and Lion Inn

Peace and quiet along the wall. The embankment is a more recent addition to the landscape.

Perfect to grab and sit on the grass on a summer-y day. If you’re in York and the sun is shining, go find this ice cream.
