Enchanting York Shambles... A momentary escape.

York was my first trip out of London in four years. Post covid, post baby, pulling out of the quick sand.


Old town York with a toddler is a bad idea. Negotiating the narrow alleyways with a buggy is painful for you and everyone around. One afternoon while the husband volunteered to babysit, I managed to sneak out on my own to the Shambles. It was magical, whimsical with curious little 'Ghost' shops, 'Teddy Bear Shops' and 'The shop that must not be named'


Most of them still retaining their medieval architectural features. Ghosts and owls, cauldrons and brooms I wanted to remember this narrow cobblestone alley and that fleeting moment of whimsy forever. Needless to say this illustration is a bit extra special.


And then in a few seconds it was back to reality… tourists, toddlers and tantrums.
