I am so lucky that in the course of doing my research for my own titles I have been able to visit some fascinating historic places. York is the one that encapsulates time as now other. If you were a Roman, it was known as Eboracum. If you had lived there through the Saxon era, then it would have been called Eoforwick. Perhaps it is better known historically as Jorvik because of the state of the art Jorvik museum which brings Viking York back to life.
Walking through the city’s narrow lanes is like seeing all eras of time side-by-side. Medieval wooden structures stand next to Georgian houses and over them all are the famous towers of a grand cathedral known as The Minster.
There are far too many aspects of this fantastic place to mention in one post so I am sharing some photos of the city with you that I discovered when researching locations for Abigail Moor.

Fascinating city, thanks Val
I plan on posting more blogs about this fascinating city. Glad you liked this one 🙂
One of my favourite places, except for the traffic and the cost of car parking. I went to the Railway Museum last month – what a good museum that is!
I ran out of time for the railway museum this last visit but managed Jorvik, The Castle Museum, a walk around the wall, Fairfax House, The Minster and Betty’s Tea Room. I so want to go back soon and would love to see the Christmas market. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
