Best Department Stores in and around York?

by Hexen1012

Hi,
Strange question to ask - but i have family who are currently on a working holiday in York, and rather than buy and send a present from Australia (and incur the huge costs), I was thinking of buying online through a department store in York? (most like a gift card)

Marks & Spencer... Browns..... I just dont know what there is, and which would given them (25 old) the best selection!
Thanks

Topshop or Miss Selfridge might be a good choice if the recipient is female, I think these stores would have more appeal for a 25 year old than M&S or BHS

This is not a strange question at all. Many people will order gifts online and have them delivered 'remotely'. The store does not even need to be in York as our Postal/Courier service is currently excellent. A greetings message can be included and even gift wrapping !
For example you can order some smoked salmon from Scotland to be delivered to an address in York. Or flowers from the Channel Islands to be delivered to an address in York ! Or chocs from Thorntons. http://www.thorntonschristmasemporium.co.uk/catalogue/
The list is endless.

I agree, much better choice for a 25 year old, male or female.
M&S do good quality stuff but a little too old for young 'uns :o)

Travel Tips for York

York Festival Of Traditional Dance

by JohnHarper

Each year around the second weekend in September Ebor and Acorn Morris invite traditional dance groups from around the country to dance in York. A procession from the Guidhall and Mansion House starts the day moving down Davygate and ending up in the paved area of Parliament Street. From there the groups disperse to dance at various sites around the centre. There is a grand finale in the afternoon where all the groups dance in Saint Sampsons Square for the Mayor and his party. The festival continues on the Sunday with any groups that do not have to dash off home early. It is a colourful spectacular and worth bringing your camera.

There is usually a backup venue for when it is raining and in the past the festival has moved inside the Guidhall, see photograph number three.

For those that can't make this date the Ebor Morris Men dance in Kings Square most Monday nights from the middle of May to the middle of August.

The people in York (not just...

by markwalk

The people in York (not just the Pubs, hotels etc) are definately some of the most friendliest people I have ever encountered. It's not just a rumour about a real Yorkshire welcome, just strike up a conversation and it might just be the beginning of a long friendship! Everything about York and its residents!

a wake

by margaretvn

We went on holiday together for the first time after we were married and rented a flat in York for a week. It was an second floor flat and very nice. ONLY the man from the first floor flat had died the day before we arrived and he was Irish and catholic. His family held a 'wake' for him every night of the week we were there. the whisky flowed and they chatted and drank all night!! So perhaps FOND is not the good word here.

Conference Football

by cheekymarieh

Bootham Crescent is the home of York City Football Club. This is a traditional ground with standing on the terraces remaining in place. Of course you don't pay Premier League prices to watch a game and there isn't the 30,000 crowd (more like 3,000). In May 2004 the club was relegated from the football league down to the Conference. Take some warm clothing in winter time and something to cover your head in case it rains during the match. Not all areas of the ground have a roof over the supporters heads (especially if you are in the visiting team end!)

Prices range from £12 - £15 for adults.

Part three

by iandsmith

The fourteenth century was an era of tremendous chaos. Harvests were affected by the drop in overall temperature, as well as an abundance of rain, which led to flooding in parts of northern Europe. The population was also twice as large as it had been in the previous century, leading to an outbreak of famine. When the Black Death arrived in England during the fourteenth century, it quickly overcame an already weakened population, and by the end of the century, approximately 30 percent of Europe's population had succumbed to the plague. The fourteenth century also saw conflict between the Scots and the English monarchy, as well as between the English and the French in the Hundred Years' War, and raids on the frontiers which left the countryside devastated. You may further explore fourteenth century England through the The Georgetown Labyrinth . The chaos in society as a whole inevitably affected the monastic life at Fountains. Eventually the monastery began to lease out its granges, and to move away from the system of lay brothers. A revival occurred when Marmaduke Huby became abbot in 1495, and instigated a series of reforms. Abbot Huby, as did other abbots of his period, sat in Parliament. There were 52 monks at Fountains during his tenure as abbot. The Great Perpendicular Tower at the Abbey is a testament to his achievements, and to the last great age of Cistercian monasticism in England. Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries brought an end to monastic life at Fountains in 1539.
