This is York today. As beautiful as ever

Whether you are stuck at home by design or default, we thought we would bring York to you.

It’s quiet, but not that quiet – there are a good few people in town, just not the numbers you would usually expect.

Chairs and tables at those cafes and bars still open are, however, sparsely populated. Many businesses have signs in the window explaining their response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Peer through the windows of the office blocks by the station and you will see dozens of empty workstations.

But wider nature has none of these concerns. And there are some lovely signs of spring in the air.

It’s still a very beautiful city.

Below are some photos of how the city looked today, Thursday 19 March, 2020.
