With tired feet, we decided to get the small locomotive to York Minster, where we PAID to climb over 270 narrow spiral steps to reach the top of the Minster's Tower. It was the perfect day to enjoy the York skyline but still good to reach the bottom again!
After a relaxing afternoon, we headed back to "31Castlegate" for dinner. Sean was very keen to go on one of York's nighttime ghost tours, so Brett Snr somewhat begrudgingly agreed. Apparently, there are lots of ghostly stories to tell in this city! Sean's summary of the tour, "It was great!"
