The Great British Road Trip - York & Yorkshire

 We start our Yorkshire adventure, fittingly, in York

View of York Minster from atop the city walls.

York is a small city with a vast history, its roots can be traced back to roman times. It was built and rebuilt successively by the Romans, Vikings, Saxons and finally the English.

Monk Bar - one of the gates of the old city.

A mix of ancient and modern in front of the art gallery.

York Minster - the cathedral.

A roman column right next to the cathedral.

Inside the old town.

The Shambles - one of the surviving medieval streets of York.

The minster from another angle.

A section of the city walls, on top of which you can go for a walk.

North York Moors

This road across the moors is believed to have been constructed by the romans.

This Germanic steed made good use of the road.


The ruins of Whitby Abbey.

The mouth of Whitby harbor.

Robin Hood's Bay

A small fishing village, famous for its old world charm and steep street leading to the beach.

The beach at low tide.

These days it's pretty much overrun by tourists.

And finally Selwicks Bay on the Flamborough Headlands
