WE MADE a trip to York for the day last Saturday, and enjoyed an absolutely fabulous visit to the National Railway Museum, which was, by far, the best museum we have ever gone to.
However, as we walked into the city we came across so much antisocial behaviour that, quite simply, it put us off coming to York again.
For example, at 5.30pm there were several police vehicles in attendance at a certain hostelry following a fight. What concerns me for your beautiful city is that if we are put off by such behaviour, then what on earth do overseas visitors make of this? Surely, it would put them off too.
All I can say is that I am glad that, as planned, we did not book to stay in a hotel and dine out, as I think we would have become quite fearful of the droves of so-called hen and stag parties who were clearly out to become drunk and disorderly out on the streets.
This issue really needs addressing now before York city centre, where we have honeymooned (twice), becomes a no-go area.
