Saturday morning in York started with an exploratory run.
When the wall ended we ran around the town’s famous Shambles and market. This is an old narrow market street with overhanging timber framed buildings, some dating back to the 14th century. Shambles is an obsolete term for an open air slaughter house and meat market.
Our next stop was the York Minster or Cathedral which we had planned to tour later in the day but we found out that it was closing at noon for the wedding of Ellie Goulding who is a famous English singer and songwriter. We forgot about breakfast and immediately booked a tour of the Cathedral and a self guided tower tour.
After finally showering and getting dressed for the day we returned to York Minster where Sandy enjoyed watching the wedding party exiting the church and looking for the celebrities Katie Perry, Sienna Miller and Orlando Bloom. Jim caught Fergie and her daughters on video.
That was our day in York, just a run and a wedding.
