The Weekend: A Trip To York
So, this weekend we decided to do something a little different to our usual weekend routine and head out of Manchester for the day.
Typically we prefer to go to places that have 'things to do' such as shopping, museums and other activities as well as pretty photographic scenery where we can wonder and get lost. We've been to York a number of times but not for a good few years so we thought we'd hop onto the train and head North.
We got into York around 2pm where we ventured into the maze of streets containing a mix of high street shops and bespoke boutiques. After a couple hours of exploring the heart of the city centre and in much need of a bite to eat we headed to Byron Burger. I'd previously never been before but had heard about their more than incredible 'proper hamburgers' and infamous sides so it was first on the list for a late lunch/ early dinner.
Anything containing crispy onions and smokey BBQ sauce is a winner in my eyes so i opted for the 'Smoky' whilst the other half opted for the 'Chilli' burger and we shared a side of skin on fries and Mac 'n' Cheese. I have to say, what happens at the weekend stays at the weekend and it was totally worth every bite!
After over loading on a mighty meat and cheesy carbs we escaped the crowds to explore more of York whilst the sun set. We wondering across Lendal Bridge, strolled down the side of the canal and then back across York City Wall before heading home.
