- 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 2 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 2 months agoglobaltiMember
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 2 months agostumpyjonSubscriber
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 2 months agochrisyorkMember
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 2 months ago
