How does the York Pass work?
York Passes are available for either 1, 2 or 3 days and for both adults and children (child pass 5 - 16).
We do not offer a senior citizen pass.
One day pass is valid for a calendar day
Two day pass is valid for two consecutive calendar days
Three day pass is valid for 3 days out of 6 days from the first point of activation - giving you the opportunity to enjoy perhaps a day at the coast or visit the Dales with one of the discounted tours
available as a special offer in the YorkPass guidebook.
Passes are activated upon entry at the first attraction of your visit. We always advise customers to start using their pass first thing in the morning as from then on it works on a calendar day basis, not
24 hour period.
York Pass is not a fast track pass - York is a relatively small city with the city centre attractions close together and within easy walking distance. The road train free with the pass can transport you from York Minster to the National Railway Museum.
The York Pass is also subject to a "purse value" of maximum gate prices (a total value of attraction entries) related to the number of days on your pass. For example; with a 3 day adult York Pass (online price: £65 ) you benefit from £225.00 worth of attraction entry! If you exceed your "purse value", the pass will expire. Here is a complete breakdown of purse values.
- 1 Day Adult Pass has a "purse value" of £75
- 1 Day Child Pass has a "purse value" of £50
- 2 Day Adult Pass has a "purse value" of £150
- 2 Day Child Pass has a "purse value" of £100
- 3 Day Adult Pass has a "purse value" of £225
- 3 Day child Pass has a "purse value" of £150
