Earlier on this week I decided to travel to York to celebrate my other half's birthday, we ate some amazing food and did a spot of shopping and sight seeing around the city centre. It wasn't an intention to blog this trip as I completely forgot to take my camera with me but I did however put some posts' on my instagram @hannahslittlehaven, I just wanted to give you a little insight into how beautiful York really is!
We stayed at the Ibis York Centre Hotel which we booked through a website called Late Rooms, the hotel was placed on a street which leads directly to the City Centre for all your luxurious shopping. The shopping Centre is to die for, I fell in love with how all the big named shops such as The White Company, Pandora and Lush etc were all placed into the little houses from York's original structure; it honestly was a dream to look at.
On every corner of York there was a church, these ranged from little ones to really huge sculpted masterpieces. This all leafs back to the Romans who actually built the city guarded by a city wall which you can see from every angle you are in, you can walk along it but it would be an awfully long walk!
This is the church that we fell in love with...
Please bare in mind these images are from my instagram page as I completely forgot my camera so the quality is not that great but at least it gives you a sneak peek.
We had our meal of the night at an Italian restaurant called Salvino's which was just down the road from our hotel, it looked as though it was a family run restaurant and it had a fair few customers during the night too, we then decided to go back to the hotel for the night cap as we were exhausted from our day of travelling.
The next day Wednesday 24th February was our day to go home but before that we went in search of breakfast back to the city centre, me and Daniel ventured down a little alley way which again had lovely little shops down it's cobbled street; I felt as though I was in Diagon Alley from Harry Potter for a little while! We came back out on a different part of the shopping strip and came out at a pub named The Old White Swan, this is where we sat down to have some breakfast The Old White Swan is a part of the Nicholson's Pub Company and I tagged them in my instagram picture if you want to check them out..
It had such an old rustic theme through just modernising and tweaking little aspects from the 16th Century, it really was a beautiful place the staff who served us were so kind. We had a pot of tea which came with this little tea set of milk and sugar cubes! So Cute. The breakfast was even more amazing, the details in this place were unmissable the menu was placed in a hardback book.. if your somebody who really values things which are small and delicate, my advice is to go and check it out.
After a spot of Daniel's birthday shopping we decided, to make our way back home for work in the morning so it was time to go back to the hotel and pack all this makeup away...
Take a look at my instagram for the images which are much clearer, I just wanted to write a post about my visit to York and I will definitely be investing in a new camera soon, to take on my next travels!
See you soon, All my love
