Went to York from Bradford @GBP10.60 pp return. York is a place of living history of the Vikings.


We walked through the two-mile, 2000 years old historic city wall to get a loftier view of York city.





The cross slit in the wall is just enough for shooting the bow and arrow across.

Castles like this is a common sight in York.


We also visited York Minster, the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, a place of worship for over 1000 years.



And the MonkBar:



and York's bustling streets with lots of tourists from all over the world.



There are lots of guided river tours along River Ouse which we did not take because of the freezing cold weather that hovers around one or two degrees!!


The place we like most is still the market place where you can see a lot of local flavour and life of local people here. It looks more like our Petaling Street back home except for the weather of course.

Locally dried candied fruits

Hahaha...monkey nuts are actually groundnuts because they are meant for monkeys and not humans!!



The Christmas atmosphere at York Train station.

    Keeyit,
    Except for the 7X exchange rate of course, but actually food to those who works here is very cheap. If your have friends that you can stay with in UK, then holiday here is nice and not that expensive.
