Favorite thing: Monday, September 8, 2008
After a full day of sight-seeing in the Yorkshire Dales, we ( Hans and I, Sue (Suet), June (Poons), Angie (Angiebabe) and Sue (Suvanki), were getting hungry. We stopped in the lovely town of Knaresborough and found a Chinese Restaurant, where we all had a bite to eat.
KNARESBOROUGH is in North Yorkshire, 16 miles from York.
This lovely town, with a beautiful crag-tip setting on a gorge of the River Nidd, has much to offer visitors. Sights in the town include the remains of Knaresborough Castle (circa 1100) and Mother Shipton's.
The main pic is of the gorgeous view you see of the River Nidd and the Railway Bridge. It's so picturesque with all the little boats which are available for rent.
Favorite thing: I just love hopping off the bus at the Market Place and then walk downhill to the river via lots of wonderful cottages I wish I owned, like this one at Waterbag Bank - so called as it was from here water was carried up hill to town.
- Hiking and Walking
- Sailing and Boating
Favorite thing: The pub with the prophetic title. This pub is situated on the river side near Harrogate to Knaresborough road bridge. Over the bridge is The Yorkshire Lass pub.
