There is no better way to see York than on a double-decker City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus! See top York attractions on this comprehensive sightseeing tour, such as Clifford’s Tower, Exhibition Square, York Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre and much more. The buses are open top, allowing 360-degree panoramic views along the route. Hop on and off at any of the 18 stops around Yorkshire’s capital during 24 hours of sightseeing.
Often called England’s 'capital of the north,' York is a city that has history, fine architecture and friendly people in enticing abundance. The Romans left their mark on the city, and York’s Viking heritage gives its history an interesting edge. So, hop board the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus and discover sightseeing opportunities galore.

Admire top York attractions such as Exhibition Square and York Minster — home to a staggering collection of stained glass windows — and perhaps hop off at Clifford’s Tower to climb the monument and soak up the city views. Take a short stroll from Clifford’s Tower to visit Jorvik Viking Centre where more than 40,000 Viking-era artifacts await, or visit Monk Bar fortress and Merchant Adventurers’ Hall to see two of York’s medieval structures.

With your sightseeing ticket, you can remain on the bus for an entire loop (roughly one hour) while listening to the entertaining commentary, or you can hop on and off at any of the 18 stops around the city.
