Family Friendly Activities in York
By Viator, March 2014
York also has an abundance of excellent museums and there are plenty of ways to mix education and fun while holidaying in the city. Go back to Viking times at the Jorvik Viking Centre; explore a recreated Victorian street at the York Castle Museum; take part in a mock archaeological excavation at Jorvik Dig; or climb on board steam locomotives and Japanese Bullet trains at the National Railway Museum, where younger rail enthusiasts can also meet Thomas the Tank Engine. If you’re visiting during summer or autumn, kids of all ages will enjoy getting lost in the cornfields at the York Maze, where a series of adventure play areas and farmyard activities will keep them entertained all afternoon.
