  • Richard the iii experience was good and the kids enjoyed themselves, as it was part of the york pass it made it better as didn't have to pay. Worth a look but only for an hour  more »

  • If you like history, it's for you! Every corner has it's own history. On the 3rd floor you'll find your knight in shining armor, ladies, but he's a hard guy to get.
  • Wasn't the best but a nice break to learn some history when walking the walls. Stairs are old stone ones quite narrow and limited/no hand rails but it us a brilliant building. Has a couple of videos, and a few artifacts hut mainly boards on walls.
  • Lovely historicplace
  • Not a great deal to see, but reasonable value if paired with visit to Henry VII Experience. Walk along the walls to the other gate house has great views of the Minster.
  • Pretty good value for £5 but when compared to other attractions such as the Jorvik centre, fairly limited in information and activities.

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.
