    What to Expect
    With the untarnished essence of a true medieval village, York boasts a mix of lasting heritage and modernity, offering fascinating museums, stunning Gothic architecture and a traditional drinking and eating culture.

Hop on the open-top, double-decker bus at any of the 18 stops along the route, and enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own sightseeing itinerary and tour duration. 
    Grab a comfortable seat in either the indoor or open-air seating section and take in the views along the 1-hour route. Relax as the bus makes the entire loop or hop off at any stop – another bus will be along in 10-30 minutes to pick you up. Discover Exhibition Square and York Minster — one of the world’s most beautiful Gothic cathedrals. Then head to Clifford’s Tower – the lasting remains of William the Conquerer’s York Castle – followed by a visit to Jorvik Viking Centre to get an interactive look 9th-century life in a viking village. Finish there, or continue to the Monk Bar Fortress or any other stop on the route that catches your fancy (full itinerary listed below).  
    Ending your tour is easy - just hop off!
    Note: Entrance fess are not included in your hop-on, hop-off pass.
