Monday night we stayed in Derby and on Tuesday drove to York.  We walked around town saw some Castles, some Cathedrals and had an authentic Cornish Tasty (meat pie) for lunch.  Yuck!  Further north, we got a little lost and found ourselves at the Sun Hotel in Warkworth.   We walked around town, had a great dinner, and then woke up and took a tour of the castle across the street. We learned that this castle is the opening scene for Act 3 of Shakespeare's Henry IV (or something like that).
