York travel trip 10.11.2007

First time travel to York, The most visited place by tourists in UK after London, are fully crammed with history dating back to the Roman empire. This city has once been conquered by the Romans, then the Saxon Anglos, followed by the Vikings. The is a good mix of building architectural designs of the whole city. One thing to boost is the cathedral which is arguable the largest and most important gothic cathedral in the UK. (some might argue that Canterbury is the most important church in the UK).

Nevertheless, the whole city has an amazing environment, not forgetting the ever friendly locals who without fail made the first move to have a conversation with us! IT is more surprisingly that one british guy speaks malay language to me!

A visit to this city is a must if you are into UK history, loves tea rooms ( but be prepared to wait in a long queue!), or fancy something different than London... Ok now, less words and more photos.... Enjoy the whole photos blog...
