G headed up to York to visit me on the weekend before Halloween. Having the car allows us to explore more of the Yorkshire countryside, so we decided to spend our weekend out and about rather than in town. After a bit of research, we decided to spend the Saturday at Beningbrough Hall, a National Trust property about ten miles out of the city.
At the end of term Mum drove up to spend a Christmassy weekend in York with me. In an attempt to avoid the hordes of Christmas shoppers, we instead chose to spend Sunday morning at the nearby Castle Howard checking out their famous decorations – and we had the best day.
It’s three weeks since G made his way up to York for his second visit of my spring term, so it’s high time I documented our weekend. It involved a ridiculously long walk, more baked goods than we could cope with, and a beautiful day in my city.
