York Things to Do: 857 reviews and 1,893 photos

York is always busy with tourists, but they do not always find the best things to do.

St Crux church in Whip-ma-whop-ma gate does the best cup of tea
The best ghost tour starts from outside the Kings Arms pub
The riverside pubs next to the City Screen cinema are great for a lunchtime meal when it is sunny (walk down the alley way towards the cinema from Coney Street)
The art gallery is free, has excellent exhibitions and a good cafe
Dick Turpin's grave can be visited in St Georges churchyard, George Street
York is a great place to hire a bike because it is flat and has good cycle paths (for example along the river or along a disused railway line to Selby Abbey)
If you are going to Jorvik either book in advance or go one hour before it closes to avoid the long queues
