Off to York!

And we're off to York! It's a 6 hour drive so I think I'm going to need to go to my happy place to get through this one, but I'm so excited to get there and get my exploring hat on. It's my first ever time there so if anyone has any recommendations on what we should do or where we should eat there (especially gluten free places) then please let me know! So far a LOT of you have suggested Betty's Tearoom so that's gone right to the top of the list. You had me at tearoom... you. had. me. at. tearoom.

In other news, you may have noticed the spiders legs currently residing on my eyes. Well I FOOLED YOU, they're my eyelashes. I'm normally a Bare Minerals Lash Domination or Maybelline Falsies gal, but I had the pleasure of trying out the new Loreal SuperStar mascara and it's completely won me over.

Have fun Amy! York always looks so beautiful, and I've heard amazing things about Betty's too! x

There are so many gorgeous places to go in York - I hope the weather holds out for you :)

I would suggest heading to Gray's Court (Right next to York minster) they have the most amazing gardens and the inside is really quirky and I think you would love it... They also do afternoon tea!

Betty's is a must and also York's chocolate story is great if you love chocolate...!

The shambles are pretty cool too with the really old buildings - Lots of great photo opportunities down there and some really cute boutique shops.

Have an amazing time - I can't wait to see pictures of where you end up.

I love your headscarf! York is lovely, I used to go with my family every easter when I was younger. I miss it so much and it's definitely somewhere I want to revisit as I haven't been in so long... I'm a sucker for the railway museum. I love old-school trains >< I geek out a bit there haha :) Have a great time!

You look gorgeous! Betty's is amazing! I'm from York and would really recommend The Star Inn The City for brunch and dinner - it's by the river and all local produce. Also Mannion and Co. is a great brunch/lunch spot. Filmore and Union is also amazing for coffee and lunch - they have a good gluten free menu. Evil eye in great for cocktails! There are things like Bills' and a Jamie's Italian there but these places are more local and go that extra mile for you!

Mariel Parton said...

you look so beautiful Amy, I must try that mascara as it looks great!

Chelsea Maria said...

Definitely go into York Dungeons, go have a look at the minster and if you have time one of the ghost walks! We love going to York, it's a nice day trip out.

Sophie said...

I just did a blog post on York actually...

I hope you have a good time there, it really is a beautiful city! xx

If you want a life changing meal you NEED to go to Lucias, the pork belly changed my life. I'm not even ashamed to say a piece of meat changed it. But it did.

If you're looking for some gluten free there's Goji which is veggie, gluten free and all the fun stuff free (sorry).

Good bars are evil eye (Johnny Depp was here plus there's a guy painted purple on a bike outside), dusk, blue fly and drawing board. Plus the last three are all beside each other so you can feel you're in a different place without too much effort.

Have fun in York!

This is a bit late, but if you're still looking for recs I'd definitely pop to the house of trembling madness on stonegate - sound hangover cure and obscenely good beer collection. xx

Abbie said...

Wow such a beauty! Hope York was fun xx
