Visiting York and Betty's Tea Rooms

Visiting York and Betty's Tea Rooms
Last month I finally achieved a little goal of mine- to get out and see a little more of Yorkshire. Although I know Yorkshire is gorgeous- Howarth and Skipton were lovely when I visited them- I am soo guilty of just going between uni and my bed... But anyway, I dragged Marcus out to York and it was really cute! We even had afternoon tea at Betty's tea rooms. York is super quick to get to from Leeds, taking around 25 minutes on the train, so it was the perfect day trip.

 York's Christmas market was really cute too!

York shambles

Probably the cutest area of York is the shambles- you can tell how old the buildings are because they're so wonky. The shambles was full of tasty looking food shops and sweet shops- I definitely want to go back and get myself some fudge.

There was also a really short road called 'whip-ma-whop-ma-gate'.

York Minster is a famous landmark, and although we didn't have time to go in, it's supposed to be really pretty inside. I think there's a ghost tour too!

Next up was a trip to Bettys! It's quite famous, and there is a Bettys in Harrogate too I think (another place on my list). We went to the small one, and we did have to queue for around 20 minutes but I think it's worth it.

 I got a cream tea, and Marcus had the Christmas tea and mince pies. It was sooo yummy!

It was sooo yummy! I'd definitely recommend Betty's as a good (and not overly expensive) place to go for tea.

York also has a tower which we walked up but didn't go in, as it was already getting late (and v cold).

York was super cute! I'm determined to get out and see a little more of the UK (Edinburgh is number one on my bucket list at the moment) so hopefully you guys will see a little more UK travel content soon. (I still have a couple of posts to go from Japan too). Thanks for reading!

  1. I've heard that York is a pretty place but it's just been way too far for me to travel, however I'd love to visit York Minster one day! I am sucker for old buildings and that one is beautiful. You would love Munich - they have tons of pretty buildings there.

    Those scones are making my mouth water! I love cream tea - I wish I never found out about them because now I keep itching to go to every tea shop I pass haha.

  2. York is so gorgeous :) Luckily for me, it's close to my university so I can go there pretty quickly. Omg I'm dying to visit Germany! Munich sounds amazing <3
