This beautiful building opposite the Minster Gardens sells all sorts of brick a brack and the most beautiful plants! (Not that I need any more of those 🤦🏻♀️)
We left our apartment at @goodramgateapartments and walked 5 minutes up the cobbled street to this peaceful enclave in the city. I would absolutely recommend coming here in the late afternoon, when the setting sun washes the Minster in pretty golden light. Order tea. Order cake. Sip on steaming coffee and just know you’re in one of the prettiest cities in England. Maybe the world. Okay, just England but still... .
Happy Sunday ✨
Golden light flooding the street. Crooked beams and perfect teashops. Why is york just so pretty? Thank you so much for your recommendations! I’m reading every single one- other than the guy who recommended Five Guys to me. You know who you are 😂
Also, ladies (and lads!) if you know any salons in Manchester that do hair really well and aren’t going to chop all of mine off, please dm me or tag them below. I want a fresh cut for the warmer weather!! 💇🏻♀️✨ #visityork

The last capture of England for a while. But don’t worry, I’ll be back. (Sooner than you think!) Bath was absolutely my favorite city and I enjoyed the endless English countryside views in between. It was a whirlwind of emotions but it left me with quite a few gifts that I’ll treasure in my heart. I can’t wait for my return to this country I have grown ever so fond of. Until then, get ready for Scotland!

York and a completely made up image. A composite of Minster Gate leading on to Stonegage. I added the moon and sky for mood. I like Dickensian feeling images and the streets of my home city of York are full of Dickensian themes. I don't often do this kind of image but sometimes the creative mind runs astray. Hope you can help me break Instagram by liking and commenting on this image. Thank you in advance.

Celebrate this glorious weather and drop into the distillery this Saturday for a G&T or cocktail outside in the gin garden. The shop and bar is open 10am to 6pm, and we have plenty of cold refreshing drinks at the ready!
I think York beats Oxford and Cambridge for me now. True gem of the North with its cobbled Game of Thrones looking alike streets, river full of red city tour boats and stunning York Minster cathedral. Want to wake up super early tomorrow and walk the empty town 🙏🤷♀️ #York#visityork#yorkshire#mangogirls
Ktima Gerovassiliou is the brainchild of Evangelos Gerovassiliou. He initiated the revival of the family vineyard by planting the nearly extinct Malagousia in 1981. This state of the art winery is now surrounded by 74 hectares of meticulously well cared vineyards on the slopes of Epanomi. Ktima Gerovassiliou guarantees consistent, high quality wines of international acclaim every year and his Malagousia remains the benchmark to this day.
Inviting and exotic aromas of tropical fruits, pineapple and melon combine with a honeyed texture and hint of toasty vanilla. Opulent, with wonderful complexity and structure, this Chardonnay is rich and spicy on the finish.
Inviting and pungent aromas of nectarine and orange through to an opulent and exotic flavour, long, rich and buttery.
We absolutely love this photo by @yorkshiregreed! "AMAzing treat @arras_york with a tasting menu that delivered so much flavour in each course. If you get the opportunity you should sample the delicious food at Arras from crab to beef to red mullet to artichoke to chicken to pumpkin - it was so flavourful and moreish #yummy ."
I could really do with an iced puppachino right about now. ☀️ One of my favourite coffee stops @driftinyork
