We popped into the visitor centre (dog friendly) and picked up a couple of leaflets for local sightseeing tours and maps. Staff are really friendly and helpful and they made a fuss of Shirley our dog.

Did a little bit of research on York and it was highly recommended to get the York Pass. My friend and I decided to look up places that we would want to see and the York Pass covered it. We were in York for 1 day and calculated for each location and the pass was still cheaper. So it is... More

We were walking past this shop, and went to pop in quickly. However, the staff were incredibly helpful! I recommend you buying York Pass. This makes it easier to visit a number of places, especially those within easy walking distance, and to have a quick visit to some of the places such as Clifford's Castle, that have high individual entrance...

We contact them and they sent out a tourist information guide. We decided on 3 day York passes to see the city, these are absolutely fantastic allowing you to visit so many attractions - including those not in the city itself. We used our pass and could have done with another 3 day pass and will definitely go back again
