Far too rowdy at night
My niece and I visited York for three days over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Your city is absolutely beautiful and we loved the sights. However, on Saturday night our vision of your peaceful city was shattered.
We are from north London and were absolutely shocked by the violence on the streets. The background music was of sirens coming and going, we saw at least five fights and countless police and prisoner vans.
What a pity that we had to witness this awful sight and we feel so sorry for the locals who have to put up with this, presumably every time York races are on.
We ran the gauntlet back to our hotel and spent the evening in the lounge.
It is a shame that our memories of such a lovely historical place are marred by the horrible side of our society.
Sunday night was lovely and peaceful and we were able to enjoy the pleasures of your city.
I feel so sorry for the locals as it is obviously the visitors doing this to your fine city.
