My husband, Tinkerbell and I spent our day in the beautiful historic city of York.
York famous for The Shambles, the Minster and Betty’s what could be better!?
York is a walled city that encompasses a wealth of history, The Shambles is a very old narrow street the old buildings over hanging, almost touching. The buildings are so close together two people in opposite buildings can shake hands with each other!
At this time York has a food market we ate lunch from a Moroccan food stall which was delicious.
Before lunch we all visited Betty’s the world famous tea room.
I enjoyed a delicious cinnamon and nutmeg hot chocolate and an amazing piece of cake. Our morning tea break was enjoyed by a very warm fire waited on by staff who wore traditional English costumes. I’ve visited the popular Betty’s once before but the second time very special to enjoy this with my wonderful husband.
The city wall has a strict no dogs policy however with Tinkerbell safely in her carrier off we set around the two mile wall.
After the wall we looked in shops and I bought a lovely wooly scarf from Accessorize. I then headed into Laura Ashley and asked to leave with the very unfriendly member of staff who said ‘we don’t allow dogs’. Tinkerbell our Miniature Dachshund sat sweetly and silently in my arms – not impressed!
I don’t understand why Britain in parts are so unfriendly towards man’s best friend. Some restaurants, cafes, shops and buildings are happy for Tinkerbell to be carried in however certain businesses are in my opinion unreasonable.
Even with the later being said today has been a day of two miles on the beautiful city of York the weather wonderful and the company the best possible plus Tinkerbell make her mark on the city!
Happy Wednesday Friends!
