Jorvik Viking Centre York

Whether you're visiting the city for business or pleasure, you can't miss the opportunity to enjoy at least one of the many impressive and varied York attractions that make it one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK. Set aside some time, and pick your favourite from hundreds of affordable and enjoyable attractions suiting all ages and budgets.

York tourist attractions range from the surrounding city walls covering 2.5 miles to the inspirational York Minster cathedral open to visitors throughout the year. Also popular, the JORVIK Viking Centre offers the chance to experience some of York's Viking history in an interesting and educational way.

The fantastic York Dungeon is one of six similar UK attractions giving you the opportunity to learn about the gruesome and the gory, though if you'd prefer something a little less scary you'll be pleased to know that not all York attractions reflect the city's haunting history.

A perfect place to enjoy a family day out, The Web Adventure Park is one of the best York tourist attractions for kids. They can let off steam in the adventure playground, find their feet on the ice, climb and swing on the high ropes or enjoy a bite to eat in the club house.

York attractions inside and outside the city walls provide everything you need to fill every day of your holiday or short break, and are easy to access by car or public transport. If you're looking to enjoy them, book York holiday accommodation online with iknow for a fantastic deal saving you more money for attraction tickets and those essential refreshments.
