‘Must See York’ itinerary with a 1 Day York Pass
On arrival in York a visit to the Minster is a must. This is Northern Europe's largest Gothic Cathedral and took over 250 years to complete. ‘Behind the Scenes Hidden Minster Tours’ are a great way to enjoy those areas of the Minster that were previously off limits to visitors.
No visit to the city would be complete without having walked the walls. Try the stretch from Bootham Bar to Monk Bar and visit the Richard III Experience with your pass.
Take a stroll down the Shambles, York’s most famous medieval street and enjoy some refreshments at the Earl Grey Tearoom before visiting JORVIK Viking Centre to discover York’s Viking history.
Climb to the top of Clifford’s Tower and enjoy a ‘birds eye view of the city’.
Visit The York Dungeon for over 2000 years of the city's murky history.
After dinner why not dare to join one of the city’s ghostwalks?
