A Magical York Christmas

Christmas at #York is utterly magical. Between the twinkling lights and the infamous Christmas markets, even the Grinch would be feeling #festive! 🎁 With many events taking place, such as @uycu_ ‘s ‘Carols at the Minster’, and @uoyhistorysoc ‘s Winter Formal, Christmas is all around you! Even just taking a stroll through the Christmas markets, or the Kirkgate Christmas Tale Street at @yorkcastlemuseum, you can’t help but smile!🎄 Not only picturesque, the atmosphere in York during the Christmas period is super wholesome! Beautifully decorated #Christmas trees and delicious food stalls fill the streets, attracting visitors from all over the world. The air is full of happiness, and the smell of doughnuts- although I don’t know which is better!🍩 So, grab a Baileys hot chocolate and take a ride on the carousel…🎠 I promise you won’t regret it! Or just spend the afternoon inside decorating your house in #Christmassy pyjamas! The opportunities are endless. York is the place to be during the winter months. My only advice would be to make sure you bring a bobble-hat and gloves🧤, it’s pretty cold up north! However, enduring the north-pole like conditions is 100% #worthit to experience a York Christmas! ✨
