Laura Shepherd | Girl About York
Making memories in York
I am from a beautiful village in the North Yorkshire countryside and moved to York in 2019 with my fiancé. As a total newcomer to the city, I love finding the best places to eat, drink and stay and to make amazing memories with my family and friends. I work in marketing and on my days off I love to go walking and explore the stunning city of York. When I’m not exploring the local area and discovering new and exciting places, you will find me in my local café enjoying a coffee and cake.
