About

Discover 2000 years of history

You’ll never be short of things to do in York. Take our tour and be inspired by the beauty and history this city has to offer. Hop-on our open-top bus at Exhibition Square and get ready to start the adventure through time!

One of the main attractions that can’t go amiss is Clifford’s Tower at Stop 7. It stands proudly at the highest point in York and really is a sight to behold.

Fishergate Bar, one of York’s gateways, was built in the early 14th century by the mayor of York. Take a trip closer to the River Ouse and visit South Bank at Bus Stop 13. Wander around Rowntrees Park nearby, which serves as a memorial for employees of the confectionery factory nearby who died in the First World War.

Right by the River Ouse you’ll find Museum Gardens at Stop 21. The tranquil atmosphere makes it the perfect picnic location on a sunny day, where you can appreciate all the beautiful flowers and immaculate fresh lawns. Take a walk and you’ll even see the ruins of the medieval St Mary’s Abbey, which dates back to the mid-11th century.

Join us around York and enjoy the views!
