York attractions and things to do
York Castle Museum
A huge and joyous celebration of everyday life.
A soaring feast for the eyes, the mind and the soul.
Jorvik Viking Centre
Part Disney, part hands-on, all Viking revelation. One of York’s most popular attractions.
One of my favourite places for green spaced tranquillity, packed with history and squirrels.
A great museum for all ages showcasing York’s long and rich history.
Ghost Hunt of York
One of the most theatrical of York's Ghost Walk choices.
York Guided Walks
A free chance to stop, savour and understand some of York’s history and often missed gems.
York City Walls
A free and excellent way to see the city and get your bearings.
A very family friendly, fully hands-on restored medieval townhouse.
National Railway Museum
The largest railway museum in the world should appeal to the whole family.
