My husband and I plan to travel in England in Scotland in September. Our current itinerary will have us in York right in the middle of the York Food Festival. This wasn't intentional, but just the way our travel plan worked out. I know that York can get quite crowded during the tourist season, and I'm wondering whether the crowds during the festival might make it difficult to see what we want to see in town. I plan to investigate lodging before we book our flights so that we can adjust our schedule if it turns out that getting a room will be difficult. Because York isn't optional for me!
I welcome feedback if you've been to York during the Food Festival or just have other York suggestions!
