I went on a day trip to York. I visited Railway museum, York minster, Jorvik Viking centre, York Dungeons, cruise ship and city sightseeing. The York pass is worth every penny as it gives you access to a number of places. But do keep in mind that you need to book entry tickets for them separately. If the links to all of them would be mentioned in the York pass website that would really be helpful. Also, the city sightseeing bus stops operating from Exhibition square after 5:30. I did not know that and as a result could not make full use of the bus. Overall it was a very wonderful trip. I recommend it to everyone.

Excellent value for money, we saved a fortune as all the activities we wanted to do were on the list! And it gave us more things to do. But definitely boom all your activities and meals if you can to avoid disappointment. I do think it should state if it can be used for 48 hours rather than 2 days as it wasn't activated until half way through the 1st day so wasn't sure if I could of used it for the morning of a 3rd day?

City of many worthwhile attractions many of which are within walking distance of one another. York pass is recommended not only from ease of access but it makes you get out and about to get the best financial benefits of the pass. All the staff at the attractions were pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable as were the Visit York staff in Museum St. Plenty to see do countless eating establishments well worth a visit.

We had purchased a 2 day York pass for our visit. The passes allows access to the majority of York’s attractions and are well understood by those working in the venues. You do need to pre-book a number of the busier attractions but once done entry is easy. Don’t worry about pre booking the cruise as it’s not required although it says it is on the website.

Very easy to buy online straight on my phone saves money on activities
