Back in September we visited York, we'd planned to have a day trip there and, despite the flood, we went ahead with our visit.
The River Ouse 

The water had been up to the window sill of this house.

Cholera Burial Ground
This site is for the burial of the 185 victims of a plague of Cholera
 which lasted from 3rd June to 22nd October 1832.

Ice cream and cuddles

The history of the city of York dates back to AD 71, 
when the Roman 9th Legion arrived and built a fortress to defend themselves.

St Leonard's Hospital
Built at the expense of John Romanus,
the building comprises a vaulted crypt with a chapel above.
At one time one of the largest hospitals in the North of England.

York minster
History part of the day complete, time to explore the shops...

Gorgeous little streets,  

 with fab shops...

One excited girl- LK Bennett screams Imogen!
We headed inside to see the LK Bennett Nudes - as worn by Kate Middleton!

And then Vivienne Westwood,
We went to a Vivienne Westwood shoe exhibition last year 
and now love all things Westwood.

Love this photo of Imogen

Please Father Christmas, I'd love a pair!

Whoops, one bored Daddy and Jemima.
Sadly no more shoe shopping.

Onto the food fair

As usual, Imogen had a curry.

Time to have another look at the floods, 
before we caught the train home.

We'd had a great day out...

and felt sad to leave!
