From the ancient City Walls that circle the centre, to the infamous Clifford’s Tower, the National Railway Museum and Jorvik Viking Centre, there are many top attractions in York. The best part is these are mostly family-friendly and make for excellent day trips, so if you have visitors you won’t be short on options. 

A visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre will take you on a journey to the past to visit the period in history where Vikings claimed the city as their own. There’s also the York Dungeon, where you can learn about the more gruesome tales of the city from days gone by. Another must-see attraction is the Yorkshire Museum and beautiful surrounding gardens.
