Great way to get introduced to the city of york. Takes an hour or so to do hop on/off and then it's great to go back and explore places in depth with the york pass. Walk the city walls, do a free walking tour, definitely do the chocolate factory museum and tour. Visit Clifford's tower

Great way to see the city! So much to do in just two days. My highlights were the hop on hop off bus tour, York Minister, York Dungeon, Fairfax house, and despite the hype and long lines Jorvik was just kinda meh. City boat ride was nice!

I really made the most of the 'York pass'. I set out from my accommodation in time to catch the first HOHO bus which left at 0900. I did a circuit, the commentary was excellent, before going to The Yorvik centre, which opened at 1000 a.m. I enjoyed it but it was very different than I expected and not as extensive. From there, I walked to the York Dungeons. This is mostly play-acting, unlike Edinburgh Dungeons which include many medieval exhibits, as well as acting. Best enjoyed with youths I think! Then I visited York Castle museum and Clifford Tower. After lunch, I went on the 'Yorkboat', then a visit to the museum in the grounds of the old Abbey gardens, to see a viking exhibition. I might have done other things too, but can't remember now! Finally, I went on the Ghost bus tour, which was not included in the York Pass but was thoroughly enjoyable! Made even livelier by about 30 school children on the bus! The actor obviously loved his job, having all the girls screaming with 'fear'!! There is so much to do in York! So glad I went and recommend it, especially for families of older children. As a solo traveller, I enjoyed seeing others having fun too!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2017

Awesome pass as you get access to a lot of places, definitely worth the money!
