1st Anniversary spent in York

Recently, my husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary, and we did that in the beautiful city of York, in Yorkshire.
First, we walked around York centre to see the sights before having a beautiful meal at Middlethorpe Hall. The following the day we visited Castle Howard and Yorkshire Bird Centre.
It was a wonderful weekend with the sun shining the whole time!

If you are interested in visiting Yorkshire, I do recommend seeing York and all its attractions, plus the beautiful stately homes surrounding it.
