York is apparently the most haunted city in England.  That I can believe, little streets with names such as ‘…formerly Mad Alice Lane’ really sets the scene!

I visited York for the amazing architecture and was not disappointed.  Such a range of lovely quirky, old, new, big and small buildings.  There were a few in particular that we almost found ourselves looking out for more than others.  There seems to be an architect that designed quite a few buildings in York that had a bold signature for onlookers.  Can you see the cat in my illustration?  That is not a real cat.  That’s right – he included a sculpture of a cat on each of the buildings he designed (I’m saying he, it may of been a woman also!).  It was fun to be looking out for these sweet additions to the structure of the buildings.

Have you been to York and seen the cats?
