York, my favourite UK city

Just back from a long weekend in my favourite UK city York with my favourite mum 🙂

Stayed in a lovely B and B Bowen House, can heartily recommend it, about 20 mins from the train station, welcoming owners who can’t do enough for you, immaculate and cosy accomodation.

We had the twin room which was tiny (don’t swing any cats!) but lovely and a separate private bathroom just a few steps away. Fab. Here’s the website –  http://www.bowenhouseyork.co.uk/

Even though the weather was iffy on the first day (and it had to pour it down when we were on the most remote part of the city walls!!) it was still great.

Since the rain didn’t let up on the first day, we headed for my favourite food joint in York – Oscars. http://www.oscarswinebar.com/

It’s a cosy, low key place that’s always packed and serves HUGE portions of scrummy food, i can heartily recommend the bean burger, piled high with salsa, cheese, onion rings and chips!

Then it was off to the cinema, marvellously situated next to the river, a fantastic view of it all flooded, to watch Dark Shadows, the latest Johnny Depp film (not bad actually)

Not bad Johnny, not bad . . . . .

Next up, guided tours and walking the walls.
