How it works

How to use the pass

The York Pass is a 'smart card' - which allows you cash free entry into your choice of over 30 attractions.

Once you have purchased your York Pass you will not have to pay to get into any of the attractions included in the pass and the more you see, the more money you save.

Simply show your York Pass at the admissions desk of any of the included attractions, it will then be swiped through a special machine and you will be allowed entry. View the full list of York attractions you can get into free with the York Pass.

You can use the York Pass to take advantage of special offers. Simply present the card at the payment point to redeem the offer.

Please note that Child Pass is available for children aged between 5 and 16 inclusive (children under 5 years are free). 

Activating the York Pass

Your York Pass is then valid for the number of days that you purchased - be it 1, 2 or 3 days and is subject to the purse value of maximum gate prices related to the number of days. This means that for a one day adult pass you can visit up to £80 worth of attractions.

The York Pass records when and where you first use your pass, as well as how long the pass will remain valid for.

This means that should your travel arrangements change, your York Pass is activated from the moment that you first use it at an attraction.

ADVICE: It is important to note that a 'day' is based on a calendar day, so should you first use your pass at 4pm on Monday. Monday is counted as day one of your pass usage.

Validity of the York Pass

The York Pass is valid for use on consecutive days only. At the end of your validity period or when your purse value has been used up, the pass will expire and will no longer allow access to attractions.

If, for example, you used a three day pass for the first time on Monday, your pass will cease working at the end of Wednesday, regardless of how often you have used it in between.

Shipping information

When you buy the York Pass online, you can choose to either have it shipped to you or to collect it once you arrive in your chosen destination.

Please note you can currently collect passes only if your final destination is York. In the near future you will be able to collect your York Pass from a number of Visitor Information Centres in Yorkshire.

Getting your York Passes Shipped

If you choose to have your York Pass order shipped to you, you must allow for an appropriate amount of time between placing the order and your planned trip to a Yorkshire destination. Please allow for five days for deliveries within the UK and ten days for international deliveries.  

We strongly advise against shipping to hotels and third parties. Any shipping to hotels or third parties is entirely at the risk of the client. We do not guarantee shipping and do not accept any liability. Mislaid or missing orders may only be reissued with additional payment.
