Fancy a night-time stroll through one of the best preserved medieval streets in the world? aye or nay? love the atmosphere in this shot of wonderful york by @hbojho - characterised by overhanging timber-framed buildings that hug the roadside, the street is a proper time machine to days gone by.
talking of that: i've just got back from lichfield cathedral, which houses over 1,300 years of history in the only medieval three-spired cathedral in the uk.. click the union jack on this profile to view the stories and live tour... a small little trip on the way back home! love that about britain - historic buildings are peppered throughout the landscape as you travel. plus, you know, lovely tea rooms. and yes, i did have a scone. ha!
york was founded by the romans as eboracum in 71 ad and the emperors hadrian, septimius severus and constantius i all held court in york during their various campaigns. along with the beautiful york minster which was built circa 1338, a visit to the shambles, right here, is a must. the street is lined with shops, boutiques and tea rooms in buildings many of which are over 500 years old... lovely shot by @hbojho 🇬🇧 want your photos of britain to be featured? follow us and then add the tag #photosofbritain and tag us in the picture too! 🇬🇧
