York YHA is in a good location to take the Ouse riverwalk into the city. The hop-on/hop-off bus pass both provide a good orientation and transporatation. Phil and I split up as we anticipated different interests.
York Museum and Gardens included ruins. York Castle Museum was a little pricey, but turned out to be quite interesting. You could spend all day, as many displays include a good deal of reading. The portion including the prison was interesting. History of incarceration. And projected video images on cell walls with inmates describing the conditions.
A good chunk of the day was meandering in and out of churches. I really missed the grandkids when visiting the National Railway Museum...they would have loved it. The people working there truly enjoy sharing knowledge about the history of railroads.
Married to Ruth, three daughters, four grandchildren, retired architect. Enjoy about anything outdoors...gardening, camping, canoeing, sea-kayaking, wood turning, bee keeper, and of course traveling. Ruth has recently retired from public school teaching career, so we are looking to travel as our full-time avocation.
