This morning, our tour group departed our Durham lodgings and paid a repeat visit to Durham Cathedral with benefit of more time.This is a stunning building dating from the 11th century, featuring Norman architecture. Unfortunately, photographs of the interior are discouraged.
Next, we drove south for about 2 hours to find our lodgings at York. After checking in and availing of a light lunch we went direct to the Yorvik Viking Centre, a quality, visitor attrraction built around York’s Viking era archaeology which allows visitors to connect with that period of York’s eveolution through the ages.
Next, we navigated on foot through York’s medieval and narrow streets to our destination of York Minster, which rankas as one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in Europe.Here we spent and hour or so exploring the impressive interior before returning to our lodgings and evening meal.
Weather today was wet but the rainstorms did not adversley affect the tour schedule.
Tomorrow, we visit Castle Howard
