    Near there on a street I forget the name of it a great old bookshop I also forget the name of, near to a very good bistro-y place that does veggie food. Which I also forget the name of. :D

    Sorry for being crap.

    I haven't been to York in years, but it's a really nice city to spend a few days in.

    The museums are excellent. Jorvik Viking Centre is well worth a look, as is the National Railway Museum (yes, I know... :oops: :D ) and a few others.

    I can't recall any names offhand, but York is replete with good pubs as well. :cool:

    Just wander around looking above eye level. Beauty abounds.

    As mentioned Jorvik Viking Centre is really good.

    If you like Ale try some Centurian Ghost which is available in loads of pubs there.

    There's a huge antiques fleamarket in a big red house (just as you walk from the station towards the Minster). Worth a wander round.

    I like ghosts but not real ale.

    Thanks for tips-now where is a decent place that does cheap doubles and is simply riddled with atmostphere and does not play piped music? Nobody say Wetherspoons:hmm:

    All of the above plus.
    Make sure you go up the tower in the minster.
    A boat trip is a nice relaxing hour.

    Just emailed a veggie mate who lives there to suggest eating places for you.

    The Chapter House in the Minster!

    it is covered in the most fascinating carvings - you could spend a day looking at them and not be bored :cool:

    I'm in York next week :) When I am not in meetings I'll be in bars or wandering through the shambles.

    Any decent curry houses?

    A walk along the walls - done that. Must be cool in the snow.

    Done a ghost walk and a ghost boat trip in York too.

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    Go on the Micklegate run on a Saturday night....thats where the real culture is at ;)

    Left York at 17 after growing up there, don't go there much now.

    Went back at Xmas it was a huge disappointment.

    I was in York today (for a 2 hour meeting :rolleyes:). I had a lovely pasty for lunch (peppered steak), but they did some vegetarian ones too. Can't remember where it was though. :)

    :rerleyes:

    Apparently the pub had a white alsation cyberfairy, if that narrows it down.

    The pasty was from somewhere else so nerr.

    The pub with the white Alsatian (and a cracking selection of beers) was called the Corner something-or-other (probably Corner House). Out the train station and left, down the road a bit, cross the busy road, past the bus-stops a bit and up a side road on your left. They had a decent outside seating area for the smokers also. (See? A proper recommendation).

    Still fucking appalling imo. it's 2009-i expected links, multimaps, photos, not vague rumours of side streets and 'white alsations.' :rolleyes:

    My mate has emailed me back. I should add that he's not a real Yorkshire lad and his attempt at a Yorkshire accent is crap. He has a shitty uni accent but I'll give him his due, he tries.

    However he does know good snap when he sees it so I would trust his suggestion.
