Andrea, two of her wonderful pals, and I boarded the train from Bradford to check out York, the “Capital of the North.”
As soon as you exit the train station, you see the Roman walls, which were built in 71 AD!! (What?!) Incredibly, you are able to walk along the top of the walls as you make your way into the city.
We then headed to the incredible Yorkshire Gardens, which happened to be decked out in vibrant fall colours.
And there were birds of prey chilling in the gardens, putting on shows, and being generally cool.
A jaunt down the shambles – a super old street which was mentioned in the Domesday book over 900 years ago! It also apparently is the inspiration behind Harry Potter’s diagon alley. I was mostly excited to see the disco balls strung between the timber-framed buildings.
