Yaya and Lloyd, the guys behind the excellent blog Hand Luggage Only, finally made a trip to York.
Like, holy hell guys, what took you so long? It is one of Britain’s most attractive cities.
It seems that they had earlier visited Yorkshire, but other than a quick sprint in and out with a rental car never got to see the true jewel in the crown of that great northern county.
“All we saw was the drive after picking up the car and the drive back to drop off the car (both of which looked absolutely gorgeous in a quintessentially English way) so, at some point, I just knew we had to come back and explore this beautiful city properly!
And so we did! On our latest Microgap in England, I figured it was time we got to grips with some of our island’s absolutely fascinating history!
And where better to than the city, with a history that spans back thousands of years, a city once occupied by Romans and Vikings and one that still held on to its ancient history rather visibly everywhere you went!”
I particularly loved their night photo of The Shambles
