York

Today we went to York where we spent some time at the Minster. There was an impressive street artist working outside



Inside we explored the whole cathedral, including the undercroft and crypt, and we climbed the 275 steps to the top of the tower.



After the Minster we had lunch and then walked up the Shambles before going to the Jorvik Centre. After that we went to Clifton Tower where we climbed to the top.






After that we went for a ride on the Yorkshire Wheel and took a cursory glance at the railway museum which really deserves a better look than we gave it today...

After we had caught a train back to Leeds we went to a Thai restaurant called the "Chaophraya." The food there was delicious and the service was quick and efficient, the atmosphere was delightful, I thoroughly recommend this as a place to dine should you get the chance. An added bonus was that we got to sit next to a beautiful painting which really enchanted me.

Apparently, all Minsters are cathedrals but not all cathedrals are minsters!
We had a lovely time in York and the weather is glorious just now!

What I loved about the painting was that you could see all the texture, how they had achieved it, so simple yet so elegant, I couldn't capture that in a photograph!
