York is known of its history to steam rains, from ghost stories to chocolate tasting; it is full of wonder and joy.

  • Yorkshire Museum

Housing an impressive collection of geological facts, sculptures, archaeology and also there are now also family friendly interactive displays and film elements. Great place to visit with kids.

  • York Art Gallery

I had the most fun visiting the York Art Gallery. It holds the largest collection of the ceramics of British studio of the country. Great for a family day out which is not something you’d expect from an art gallery. A ticket will allow you to return as many times as you like all day and entrance is free to anyone with a York discovery card.

  • York Minster

York Minster is a highly impressive building and the prominent landmark of the city. There are lovely and welcoming grounds to walk around or sit and enjoy the surroundings. Also, you’ll get a free guided tour at the ticket price. This is a great architectural gem in the city and is visible in the city skyline from most of the city; it is well worth a visit and is a great place to explore. The staff is friendly and helpful and it is well worth the entry fee.

  • Jorvik Viking

The Jorvik Viking village is a center of the smells and sights and has a museum in its premises. It is an amazing place for the kids to have fun and enjoy the beauty of nature and the serenity. The tour takes you back to Viking times with all the sounds and smells.

  • City Walls

York City Walls is a must for any tourist as it is the longest stretched walls from the medieval times. Extremely well preserved and amongst all the cities in England, With just over 3 kilometers long, it took me approximately two hours to complete the whole circuit – also, if you prefer you can also take up shorter sections for walking. They are open every day. Just be there before dusk after which they close. The ticket is free for all.
