The York Minster and the National Railway Museum

Saturday, January 06, 2018
York, England, United Kingdom
We woke up today to a lovely sunny day.  We had a delicious breakfast in the restaurant of Dean Court before heading into the York Minster and climbing the tower.  A very strenuous climb, but good to be able to meet the challenge and enjoy the gorgeous views from the top.  We spent more time exploring the Minster before then doing a walk along York’s city walls.  There were more wonderful views from here and it was a very enjoyable walk.  We then headed over the bridge to the National Railway Museum.
I really enjoyed this museum, particularly the array of Royal trains that were on display. 
We had a sausage roll for a quick lunch at the museum, before heading back into town to discover the pub called the House of Trembling Madness.  This was hidden upstairs at the back of a liquor shop but was amazingly quaint once we got up there.  Even though it was only mid-afternoon, it was packed, but we were lucky enough to grab a couple of seats on a shared table.  We enjoyed a conversation with a young couple from Tasmania, who were currently living in the UK. 
After the House of Trembling Madness, we headed to Soltarno for a glass of wine and some Spanish croquetas to round out our light lunch.  Dinner that night was at Rustique Lendal, a French restaurant, where we ate onion soup and chicken with cream and mushrooms.
