Family Day Out York | Discovering York’s Sightseeing Options
Imagine standing on the cobbled street of the Shambles in York….. having made your way through some of York’s main attractions including York Minister, York Chocolate Story, Cliffords Tower and the National Railway Museum…. So now’s the time to leave the crowds of tourists snapping away on the famous medieval cobbled street and head for one of York’s impressive sightseeing options.
Grab a City Cruise York – you’ll love seeing york from the water
The City Cruise lasts between 45mins to an 1hr and provides a welcome relief to enjoy the city. If you catch the right time of year, we’ve heard you can even see kingfishers darting into the Ouse too…
hop on a city sightseeing bus – you’ll love the commentary
Having visited over 50+ European Cities on our European Roadtrip, we’ve decided that these offer the easiest way to see a city if you’re pushed for time… or if you enjoy hearing the anecdotal commentary rather than sifting through guide books… either way they were great value to us, as they were yet again included in the York Pass.
see the sights through your camera – just head for the city walls
Yet again, Lottie’s enjoyed taking hew new camera around York and whilst we understand not everyone enjoys photography. It’s been a revelation for us to try and find new views (through the lens) of all the cities we’ve visited in Europe and it’s certainly worth doing this at least once with kids on a city visit….
