I left home on Monday morning and drove for just over two hours to reach my destination. I made reservations some time ago to stay at the Four Seasons (above) a wonderful B&B run by Bernice and Steve. I am glad I reserved when I did as this place is usually booked solid. It’s the only five star guest house in York and everything was perfect – the accommodation, breakfast, location, and Bernie and Steve are consummate hosts. Set just a little way outside of York’s city walls in a quiet tree-lined street, The Four Seasons is ranked highly in Tripadvisor and was convenient for me as I had a place to leave my car while I wandered through York.
Some of its stonework dates back to Roman times. York was founded in AD 71 and was called Eboracum.
I stopped for lunch at Cafe Concerto, situated on the road called High Petergate, virtually in the shadow of York’s famous cathedral, York Minster.
I ordered the Yorkshire Platter – Yorkshire Pork Pie (cold, of course) with mustard, pickled onions, soaked apricots, salad, a variety of cheeses, Yorkshire ham and lots of freshly baked bread. Delicious!
Next time I will tell you about my visit to York Minster!
