Here is her top 10 things to do in York England

  1. Walk around a stretch of the city walls, where you can peer into people’s gardens and imagine hundreds of years of invaders and defenders. If you’re there in the spring, the banks around the walls are covered in daffodils – just beautiful.
  2. Explore the vast, beautiful Minster – especially the crypt, which is a crucial location in DARK SOULS. (Make sure you get a good look at the Doomstone.)
  3. Have afternoon tea at Little Bettys on Stonegate, where the line isn’t as long as the main café. If you like scones, try the Fat Rascal. (I recommend buying a tin of the Oat & Ginger biscuits/cookies to take away.)
  4. Stroll along the river to look at the high-water mark in the old Kings Arms pub. When the river rises, it’s almost underwater.
  5. Get a glimpse of Viking York at the Jorvik Centre. The ride may look corny, but it’s a really interesting insight into the life of Viking settlers in England more than a thousand years ago.
  6. Climb the green mound built by William the Conqueror to explore Clifford’s Tower, and learn about the terrible night the old wooden tower burned down in the year 1189 …
  7. Go clothes-shopping along Coney Street, or explore the boutiques on Petergate. The Saturday market in York is great as well.
  8. Wander the narrow cobbled street known as the Shambles, and visit the little shrine of St Margaret Clitherow.
  9. Take a ghost tour after dark. I recommend the Haunted Walk of York (http://www.thehauntedwalkofyork.com/), where you’ll hear great stories from a local guide who really knows what he’s talking about.
  10. Make an excursion to Castle Howard, out in the countryside, where a number of films and TV series (like BRIDESHEAD REVISITED) are filmed. Make sure you visit its incredible folly, the Temple of the Four Winds. (You can pretend you’re Keira Knightley in Pride and Prejudice, turning down Mr. Darcy!)
