York Passes

We are delighted to be able to offer free day passes to York attractions donated by our partners at Make It York  – perfect for a day out during the summer holidays.

A York pass provides entrance to over 30 top attractions in York and the surrounding area. Whether you are in to museums, castles, or galleries, there is something for everyone with a York pass. Climb into history at Clifford’s Tower, bask in the Gothic splendour of York Minster or discover the city’s long association with sweet treats at York’s Chocolate Story. Beyond the city centre get out and about with attractions including Castle Howard, the Yorkshire Air Museum or even a steam-hauled trip to the coastal town of Whitby on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
