York CitySightseeing

York is one of the most inspiring cities to take a sightseeing bus tour in, from its exquisite architecture to the picturesque cobblestones; York will capture hearts of all ages. There are so many things to do to in the historical city of York, and CitySightseeing will assist you to discover all of the major sights and attractions that this thriving city has to offer.

 

Our recommended starting point for the tour is located at Exhibition Square, close to the magnificent Minster – the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. Be amazed by its priceless display of intricate medieval stained glass or climb the 275 steps to the top of the central tower. Your journey through York will excite and thrill your senses as you arrive at each stop with a new attraction to explore.

 

Perhaps you could take the bus to visit Clifford’s Tower for a stunning view of the historic city and then take a short walk to the Jorvik Viking Centre or if you’re feeling brave you can enter the York Dungeons which will revisit gruesome historic events and bring them back to life. Make your getaway to York as relaxing or eventful as you like - anything is possible with our grand open top sightseeing buses showing you the way.

 

From outstanding educational museums such as the National Railway Museum to a gentle cruise along the River Ouse, York offers plenty of things to do catering for all ages and interests to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

 

If shopping is more your thing why not hop off the tour bus and take advantage of the fantastic opportunity to browse independent boutiques, designer labels and fashionable high street names. When your day of sightseeing comes to an end, why not wind down and watch the world go by in a traditional tea room or a stylish café.
