Take a look at our suggested itinerary for a 1, 2 or 3 day visit to York and see how much you could save with the York Pass:
Only in York for the day? York’s iconic attractions are all just a short walk from each other – marvel at the magnificent York Minster, discover York’s fascinating Viking legacy at the JORVIK Viking Centre and tour the city with City Sightseeing.
If you’re staying for a bit longer – live and breathe over 2,000 years of York’s darkest history at York Dungeon! Enjoy Georgian York whilst exploring Fairfax House and, then, spend the afternoon just outside of the city at the Yorkshire Air Museum.
There’s plenty to discover beyond York! We’ve created several options for your third day. Take a look below:
Take a trip beyond the city to Castle Howard. Here you will find a magnificant Historic House, stunning landscaped gardens, large children’s adventure playground, cafes and a shop.
Board the North York Moor Railway & enjoy a day at Whitby.
Head to the delightful market town of Helmsley where you’ll find Helmsley Walled Garden and the National Centre for Birds of Prey.
