Edinburgh to York

We left Edinburgh this morning heading south back to England crossing the border at about 9:30am. Out first stop was Alnwick where we wandered through the main street, there were a number of markets on and a parade of various countries national costumes and music.
We walked to look at the Alnwick Castle and photographed it mainly because it was used in the Harry Potter films.

From Alnwick we travelled to York, we had a roadside lunch stop in between, and walked through the Shambles area to the Cathedral. The Cathedral was huge and its design and shape reminded us of the Notre Dame Cathedral. From there we walked on our own through the town looking at the various old shops and made our way to the town walls. These were originally built by the Romans in about 107AD and there is still quite a large section of wall remaining that you can walk around and some of the turrets are used as caf├ęs or bars.

After a few hours in town we headed back to the hotel which is a bit of a drive out of town. We had a late dinner and called it a night.
