    Find Family Days Out In York

    If you’ve got a sweet tooth then the things to do in York will be quite the treat.

    You won’t need a golden ticket for a tour around York’s Chocolate Story, where you can learn all about how the local chocolate is made and make some of your own, before embarking on the York Chocolate and Sweet Treasure Trail where you need to follow the clues and discover more delicious morsels on the way!

    With all that sugar running around your system you’ll be grateful for the chance to burn it off. Strap yourself in for a race in the fast lane at the Motorsports Village or practice those tucks, flips and rolls at the Trampoline Park. Smaller children will love the Wacky Warehouse or have a family game at Sector 7 Laser!

    Budding archeologists will love DIG, which is the ideal place to master those fossil brushing skills and learn all about what it takes to excavate ancient artifacts from York’s 2,000-year history on this York family day out.

    If parents are in need for a bit of tranquility, jump on board a York Boat trip where you can relax and enjoy the sights of the city, or take a walk around the Curious About York trail.

    Don’t forget that if the children misbehave, parents can always threaten them with a trip down to the depths of the York Dungeon, where horrible history is brought to life on this nerve-wracking 70-minute tour!

    Want to check when the next school holiday is so you can plan your family days out? We've got a handy breakdown of the UK school holidays to help.
