The cathedral is amazing because of all the wonderful carving.
I haven't any photos of the inside, which was lovely, because I didn't want to disturb the atmosphere. Apologies.There was a school choir and band practising in the cathedral. I don't know if they were playing religious or secular music, but they were glorious. We walked quietly around the cathedral listening to them.
We had a look at a display of some of the pieces of the Staffordshire Hoard. The garnet cloisonné pieces were particularly lovely despite being from weapons.
The 15th C alms houses in the Cathedral Close. The houses are lopsided from age.
On the way home we stopped briefly to look at the Roman ruins in the village of Wall. I wonder if Neil Gaiman's village of Wall in Stardust is based on this one?
Finally, the loot I bought myself. A York Lucky Cat. I bought several of those for other people. A necklace from the Cat Gallery shop in York. I bought three others as gifts. A pair of dark blue Celtic style earrings. A pewter replica of Richard III's boar badge.
