Helmsley, Knaresborough and bits in-between

When you stay anywhere you inevitably take lots of photographs of some places in-between, places you pass through, places you whizz around and never really have enough time in, places you have been to before and places you plan to one day see again.

We had breakfast one morning in the market town of Helmsley which won the best British market town in 2017. A small, quaint little place with lots of little unique shops, a delicatessen and little cafe’s in which to eat a good full english breakfast (I am going to miss these when I get back to Tokyo).

From there we travelled to Knaresborough passing by what is called ‘Britain’s best view’. It was pretty cloudy when we got there so there wasn’t a lot of light to photograph by. I saw at least 4 gliders in the sky enjoying the views below too.

Knaresborough is however one of my favourite places in Yorkshire. I have stayed in the town a few times and it has a lot of character. The town’s main feature is the Viaduct and it is also home to Mother Shipton’s cave. It is only 2-3 miles from Harrogate which is a great town to shop in and has Betty’s tea room which is always (and I mean always) worth a visit! Such yummy food.
