York visit

Those who know me know that I'm interested in contemporary and classical architecture and am also a keen amateur photographer. I enjoy taking photos of buildings and sharing them with you.

This weekend we took a family trip to the historic city of York. Founded by the Romans in AD71 and later occupied by the Vikings, the city has a rich history and a wealth of historic buildings and sites. A few hours was not nearly long enough to see all that York has to offer so we will definitely be returning in the future. Below are a few of my photos from the impressive York Minster and Clifford's Tower, the original keep and only remaining part of York Castle, built by William the Conqueror in 1068. Let me know if you'd like to see more posts like this on the site.
