York

 
The medieval city of York is a place to which I have always felt drawn.  Walking along its ancient streets and imagining the sights, sounds and smells of  people who we know so much about.  For a taste of the city as it was in Viking times, travel through time at the Jorvik Viking Centre in Coppergate, which is a journey I remember taking some years ago. 

 
The streets follow their original layout and little has changed through the centuries.

I like York, too! In fact, my mother, Mr VP and I are going for the weekend in mid-December to do a little last-minute Christmas shopping. I can't wait as neither of us have been to York for almost 5 years!

Unfortunately, the river Ouse is currently rising and is quite likely to burst its banks. The weather here is just incredible - everywhere from Cornwall to Newcastle is flooding. It's very worrying indeed :-/

Hope it's dry and warm where you are :)
