    This is such an impressive building we were delighted to go inside and learn about the history. We were lucky that the choir was practicing which was beautiful and added so much atmosphere to this special place. The restoration they have done over the years is very impressive and it’s only through support that they can maintain such a historic building.

    Fantastic experience, the walls are so impressive and in remarkably good condition when you consider their age. Highly recommend walking around first thing in the morning so you have the walls to yourself!

    We had a fantastic time at York maize. There was loads to do even when it rained. My daughter hurt herself while we were there and the first aided was fantastic, genuinely cared that she was well and also felt well and looked after me as I was concerned about her. Would definitely recommend.

    We visited as a couple and had an absolutely fantastic time. Our tour guide Jake was excellent. He was very enthusiastic, entertaining and taught us a lot we didn’t know about chocolate. We especially enjoyed making the lollies at the end. Definitely a must for any trip to York.

    Have visited multiple times, one of my favourite museums with great staff and displays.

    The ground running aircraft are fantastic.

    The whole site is part of an old RAF base so feels even more authentic. Love it!

    Interesting museum about the life of the Vikings and artefacts discovered in York. The main attraction is the ride through the display showing the Viking way of life i York all those years ago. This is supported with numerous displays of the artefacts found during the excavations. Overall a good museum to visit but doesn't take along as you think to visit the museum. Allow 1 to 1,5 hours depending on how long you spend in the exhibition display area.

    Although it was rainy and cold, I decided to walk the grounds and it was an enjoyable experience. The grounds are peaceful and made for a great time to take in the sights and escape life and just get lost in thought. The grounds have beautiful plants and the ruins of the cathedral are interesting and really get the mind going!

    We thought that the Christmas In the Woods experience was as good if not better than last year. The decorations were really impressive and the addition of the projection lighting and dancers on the ceiling were really good. We went off peak on a Thursday and it took an hour to get round. Could imagine at peak times it could be slow moving but best to take your time to take it all in.

    These gardens are extremely well laid out, most of the plants are named. A lot of thought and eye catching design has gone into the planting. A good cafe and nursery garden attached. A thoroughly enjoyable visit

    There were probably many houses like this in York with rich inhabitants, this one has been extensively restored by York City trust and you can see how the wealthy owners lived when the house was occupied.
    Our visit was made special by the wonderful guides, keen to share their great knowledge of the house, it’s past and the people who lived there.
