22 Reasons Why York Is The Greatest City In The North
City walls and nightclubs that giveaway free prawn crackers. IT'S AMAZING.
Bettys. Need I say more?
York is situated slap bang near the middle of the East Coast Main Line, making getting anywhere in the rest of the United Kingdom an absolute doddle.
And the city is southern enough to get heatwaves but northern enough to get snowfall.
What else makes York epic? ITS CITY WALLS.
Lost in the city at any time? No problem. Just walk out from the centre of town in any direction and BAM...
The streets all sound the same (which makes getting around York incredibly confusing at first)...
... but you don't care because the street names are epic.
LOOK AT THIS STREET IT'S A TITTING FILM SET.
Speaking of the city centre, there are more pubs in York than you can literally shake a stick at.
How much does a night out cost? About this much.
And of course there's The Willow, a resturant that doubles up as a nightclub. And why is it so good?
Because along with £3 double mixers you also get to eat out of a huge bucket of PRAWN CRACKERS.
And to top off your night why not head to Clifford's Tower, which was obviously built just for people to roll down.
Good news. Thanks to the location of the Nestlé factory, the city smells of chocolate if the wind is heading in the right direction.
They've also gotten rid of the FTR buses aka. the scary bendy futuristic accordion that wants to kill.
Don't forget the sheer determination of the people of York. When the River Ouse spectacularly floods each year...
... nearly everything continues to open as normal.
Go near the Uni and these will bloody frighten you though.
And think of the city's exports. SHED SEVEN.
Rowntree's philanthropy and FRUIT PASTILLES.
GUY FAWKES NIGHT.
And of course, inspiration for the greatest city in the WHOLE WIDE BLOODY WORLD, New York*.
And if that doesn't take your fancy, there's this place only a few miles away from York itself.
Love you York you beautiful beast you.
