Would 100% recommend!! My first time in York and the York pass is definitely worth it. I would say book and plan, although activities are fairly close to each other we needed to book over the October half term, plus the taxi companies all said it is a very busy city all the time. Do as much as you can and we managed to do some spontaneous things too. York minster had a light show on one night £7. We also managed to do a cocktail experience in the potion shop we paid just over £20 and so worth it!

Really enjoyed learning about the history of chocolate, was a lovely little place, nice to learn more about York and its roots.

Really enjoyed the tour, both entertaining and informative. Our tour guide Jamie was very charismatic and friendly.

A great experience plenty of chocolate to eat as well!!

The York pass is one of the best things to visit York!
