Where I Want To Visit In York 2021*

*In collaboration with Hotels.com, but all views are my own

 Travel for many of us seems like a distant memory. Gone are the days of booking a last-minute getaway or a spontaneous adventure to a far-flung destination. While we can't travel right now, when lockdown is eventually lifted and the rules are changed – which fingers crossed will be from around spring – I have decided it is time to start thinking about Staycations.

One place I have always wanted to visit is York, famous for its cobbled streets, cute little tea rooms, independent shops and Medieval history. Today I thought I would share with you some places I cannot wait to visit once lockdown restrictions are lifted.

Browse old shops full to the brim of hidden treasures like old sweets and medicines. There are also opportunities to interact with actors as you explore the museum.

Betty's Famous Tea Room
If you are looking for a classic british Afternoon tea experience, this is the place to go. They have been serving traditional afternoon tea since the 1920s and are famous across the world. You will need to book well in advance as this one of the most popular places to visit in York. If you do not want the whole experience, you can pop into their shop and have a look at all the yummy sweet and savory treats.
