Day 5: York
Gas shortages throughout London made us a little nervous as we made our trek from Suffolk to York, but we filled up when we hit 1/2 a tank and are hoping for the best for the rest of the trip.
We got to York around noon, checked into our B&B, and cruised through the busy downtown streets. York is a beautiful town with plenty of shops filling the historic buildings. We went on a guided walk around the town and over the city walls to get a bit of York's history, but approaching hour 2 decided to bail out a little early. Originally we had discussed spending 2 days here, but not wanting to spend 2 days of museums and abbeys we think an afternoon is really enough. We are mapping out our journey now for the Lake District.
Bed and Breakfast: Abbingdon
