York: Old, not New!

Arrived at York yesterday in time for a very informative walking tour.

We saw Roman ruins, the Shambles, bits of Royal history, and heard tales of life, death, and betrayal. 
We had time for a group shot in front of Clifford's Tower, the site of a horrific persecution of the Jews in 1190, leading to group suicide and 'walls that bleed' on the anniversary of the tragedy. 

We also saw the shortest street with the longest name in our stroll around the Shambles.

After a break for lunch, 

We met up again for a ghost walk with our guide Chris, a 'right' scary bloke. 

The evening ended in the Shambles...

This is a preserved medieval street, an incredible site as our evening came to a close.
