what to do 27th december

by katherineharrison Online Now Dec 26, 2005 at 7:14 AM

hello i will be going to York tomorrow (very short notice i know but i only found out today) and was wondering if there are any large cafe's or similar that i could sit and do work in for a couple of hours tomorrow, most places wouldn't like you camping out there too long i imagine but the library will be closed and i really need to do some revision. Also will many of the shops be open tomorrow? I imagine i will need some retail therapy once ive done some work! thanks in advance guys xxx

    A lot of the big shops in the UK start there after-Christmas sales today and tomorrow. You should be in luck for retail therapy!!

    Shopping
    Go to the mcarthur glenn retail outlets. You will shop till you drop.It is just a couple of miles outskirt of York.

    In the city centre, there are a lot of small speaciality shops. Very cosy and interesting architecture.


    Sight-seeing
    There are alot to do in York city centre. Take a tour bus. Railway museum and the castle is worth a visit.


    Children entertainment
    The Viking Centre is great for the kids.

    Hope its enough for the day's trip.
