Day Trippin' to York



My favourite season, Autumn, is finally well and truly here! So I decided to wrap up, ignore the typically Yorkshire weather, kick my anxiety in the arse (another post for another day) and the boyfriend and I headed to lovely York for the day. I thought I'd share a few of my favourite pictures! If you don't know, York is a beautiful, walled city in North Yorkshire, full of one off shops, cobbled streets, pretty awesome museums & the Shambles (the loveliest shopping street EVER)




 Something I love about York is the mixture of old and new that work so well together. Plus it's a total must for anyone who loves hand painted signage and typography.




York Cocoa House, this place is an absolute chocolate lovers dream. An amazing cafe & shop, It also runs chocolate tasting classes, birthday parties & hen do's. I think I'd just settle on living there?!



SO many bikes everywhere in York! Makes for a happy Steph (I love bicycle pictures!)
 More great signage for The Evil Eye Lounge.

 

 This is my absolute favourite painted signage in York, plus it's a shop too, selling the most gorgeous Steiff Teddy Bears. Well worth a visit if you're nearby (ppst, they do a mean cinnamon teacake)



A view of York Minister from the main road. You can climb to the top of one of the towers of the minister which has some of the best views over Yorkshire. Not for the faint hearted though.. There's lots of tight spiral staircase to navigate.. Not the best for someone who loves heights but suffers from some weird kind of spiral staircase-induced vertigo!

Where are your favourite places to go? My check list usually has to include; Tea rooms, a Fudge or Sweet Shop & plenty of vintage shops to poke around in.
