York

York is an old viking town with street names like “Mickle gate”, “Coppergate” and “Stone gate”.. This is the second time I ‘ve visited this pictoresque town. There are buildings dating back to the 1100 (as far as I know) and they are still in use. Here are some glimpses from streets and buildings:

A lot of the photoes were taken in the dark since we were at the Norwegian Study Centre at the University attending lectures every day.

Around the old part of York, which is also the centre today, there is a city wall with  gates several places.On Saturday we had time to walk around in the day time and got to take a stroll on a part of the wall:

Here is the one gate,photo taken after coming out of the pub nearby at night:

There are several bridges over the river Ouse. At this time of year it is often flooded.

There  are several beautiful clocks around town.

This is the street where the houses are so close you can reach out of the window and touch the neigbours’ hands:
