Things to do in York?
Partner has an interview in York during first week of December. Its a remote working position so we won’t be moving, hence having done no research on York. Thinking of making a long weekend of it. Any thoughts on what there is to do during the day on a December weekend.Posted 10 months ago
The more off-beat the better though some main stream venue ideas also welcome. We both enjoy wandering around new cities so if there are any quirks or certain areas worth seeing please let me know. Thanks.
Walking along the walls is an obvious suggestion but I will make it anyway. Boat trips are nice. You could do a ghost walk too. Visit Evil Eye for one of their espresso martinis. I am not that keen on any of the museums apart from the fantastic Railway museum which is a must do if you are in any way interested in cars n truck n things that go.Posted 10 months ago
I’m not sure exactly when they open it, but there will be the Christmas market at some point if there isn’t already.Posted 10 months ago
The Chocolate Story is actually rather good. The audio-visual presentation at the beginning explains the involvement of the Quakers in chocolate manufacture very well. After that you get to make some chocolates – we made some with a passion fruit ganache that I couldn’t stop eating!Posted 10 months ago
@cougar It’s on already – not sure how long its on for but I do know the regular market stall holders have taken their collective bat n ball home over it 🙂
Ohh, and you MUST walk down the Shambles. Beautiful (and inspired some Harry Potter sets apparently).Posted 10 months ago
Christmas markets have already started and get mega busy at a weekend. Walls is a walk if the weather is ok, if you can find a online guide for the snickets and ginnels their worth a walk round too. Never far from a pub either!Posted 10 months ago
Is the snooker “UK Championship,” held around that time, held in York? Or is it another championship they host?Posted 10 months ago
Walk the streets, look up. The Shambles is worth a stroll along even if the bottom end has turned into Diagon Alley with all the Harry Potter shops. Jorvik museum is ok, tea and cake in Bettys is a good call, or high tea upstairs in Bettys if you can afford it and want to eat like an upper class person from the 50s (need to book).
It’s a good place to walk around, the centre is quite compact.Posted 10 months ago
York Dungeon?Posted 10 months ago
House of a Trembling Madness?
And Betty’s.Posted 10 months ago
It used to amuse me from midday until very late.Posted 10 months ago
Great place. Smells of piss but a great place.
Betty’s is over-priced rubbish IMO – I hate the place with a passion.Posted 10 months ago
Lendal and evil eye are a good place for a drink.
The York dungeon is fun too.Posted 10 months ago
Train museum. Obvs!
Castle Museum was good too when we went a Christmas a few years back.Posted 10 months ago
Nobody mentioned the Minster yet, stunning. If you do want out of the city centre there’s the Nuclear Bunker and a pretty good aircraft museum too.Posted 10 months ago
26th Nov to 8th Dec in York.
Although I’m sure there are plenty of other things to do and see. 😉Posted 10 months ago
Here you go, i work just outside of York. On Piccadilly which is one of the main street in York is something called Thors Tipi…..it’s a Tipi which has a roaring fire in it and a bar, loved the mulled ciders in there! There will also be lots of Christmas stalls and Food stalls too by thenPosted 10 months ago
