3 must-see hop-off attractions
York was founded by the Romans, but if they came back today and took a City Sightseeing tour, which stops would they want to hop off at? If they asked us, we’d tell them to make The Stonebow their first stop and to visit the Jorvik Viking Centre to learn about the people who made the city theirs after the Romans had gone. This fascinating museum will give you an insight into York when it was the main city in the Viking territories in the north of England. Next, we’d tell them to hop off at Exhibition Square and take a short stroll to York Minster, one of the country’s most impressive medieval cathedrals. The first Bishop of York was appointed when it was still a Roman city, but they’d be amazed at seeing this enormous building. Finally, we’d tell them to hop off at the railway station to visit the National Railway Museum to see its impressive construction of trains from the last two centuries of locomotive travel. Imagine how big the Roman Empire would have been if they’d had trains!
