The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In York

York is a beautiful old walled city in the north of England, which was founded by the Romans and which attracts millions of tourists each year.

The combination of the old city walls alongside the river mixed with gorgeous churches, great walking streets and friendly locals make this a must-visit.

York also happens to be one of the prettiest towns in England so you'll have no problem getting a great Instagram shot...

3. Shambles

A small street that looks exactly what you'd imagine a quintessential English town to look like in your head. It's always packed with tourists though, so you'll need to come super early to get any sort of a decent shot.

This is a lovely place to relax and unwind in the heart of the city. Grab yourself a coffee or snack and sit on one of the benches with a friend, taking it all in. York Museum Gardens is home to some amazing trees and plants.

6. Bettys Café Tea Rooms

Nothing will top your day off in any old English city better than a classic afternoon tea. Let yourself have a huge feast and eat all those beautiful sandwiches and cakes. You can walk off the cream buns in the morning.

7. National Railway Museum

This part of the UK often conjures up thoughts of the great age of the railway. York's National Railway Museum does the train-era serious justice, and you'll get some cracking old-school photos when here.
