Valentine's weekend in York

First weekend getaway (and Valentine's day) was spent at York and we were there for the viking festival as well. It was a very last minute trip and we actually booked our accommodation and tickets on the day before we left.

the view on our way to our hostel, YHA York. I love YHA! Bed was very comfortable and the toilet looked fancy with its red flooring.

Orange chocolate pastry to curb my hunger pangs

Yummy brownies which we got for 1 pound each because they were closing for the day.

Clifford's Tower

York St Marys

York Castle Museum
This photo did not come easy because it was drizzling, wet, and freezing cold..

The day ended with us exploring the city before a long and dark walk back to our hostel.

Day 2

Seeing these dogs made me miss Lessie so much :(

we stayed at a different hostel on the 2nd day and the lobby and corridors are so beautifully decorated, even the toilets!

York City Wall
Also known as the Roman Wall, York City Walls were constructed as part of the Roman's fort's defences.

Battered hotdog for lunch. The deep-fried batter was quite yummy so we went back to the same place for dinner as it was more pocket-friendly.

Visited the York Dungeon and it was quite an interesting experience! I wouldn't go again though because it wasn't really cheap for me.

National Railway Museum
Interesting museum with exhibits showing how the trains looked like in the past. 

I really love the charming narrow shopping streets of York. They are all over the city centre! It felt like I had just walked into a movie scene.

Disappointing hot chocolate at a chocolate cafe -_-

Pretty pony which was part of the Viking festival.


Day 3

Tea at Betty's tea room, a famous cafe tea room. Prices are not very nice though..

These chocolate marshmallow cupcakes looked too pretty to be eaten!

Seafood Paella

super yummy potato and pork!! Best that I had tasted during my whole exchange trip!

York has been really amazing and it definitely falls under my list of favourite cities. Thank you for the beautiful memories, York.
