One of the main attraction that can't go a miss is the Clifford's Tower. Dive straight into the medieval history and go inside to discover how the tower became the remains of the grand York Castle.
The Fishergate Bar, one of York's gateways, was built in the early 14th century by the mayor of York. Take a trip closer towards to the River Ouse and visit South Bank at Bus Stop 13. Take a wander around the Rowntree Park nearby which serves as a memorial for the employees of the confectionery factory nearby, who died in the First World War.
Right by the River Ouse you'll also find the York's botanical gardens, also called York Museum Gardens at Bus Stop 20. 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 Church, which dates back to the mid-11th century. Join us around York and enjoy the views!
