Yorkshire Museum Review

Yorkshire Museum

The City of York is a tourist hotspot for both those who live in the UK and also those visiting the country. A lot of the interest in the city is due to its rich Roman and Viking heritage, not to mention the fact that it is known as the original ‘Capital of the North’ with its spectacular cathedral!

All of this heritage can be experienced and explored by paying a visit to the Yorkshire Museum. But how good is the Yorkshire Museum, is it family friendly and should you take the time to visit it? This is what we’ll be discussing in this Yorkshire Museum review.

However, perhaps what best shows the eccentric nature of the Brits more than anything else is the long and somewhat mystifying list of weird UK festivals and events.

Lake Windermere

Windermere is one of the best known lakes in the Lake District and if you are planning a visit to the area then it is likely that Windermere will be on your list of places to visit. We recently had a day out at Windermere and so I thought I’d share the experience in case it gives you a few ideas of things you could do there.
