York Pass update - more attractions, mobile download and free pizza

We love York Pass - we used it on our first visit as a family. We also reccomend it to all guests that are staying for a few days and want to fit in lots of York attractions as it can save you a decent amount of money.

The new pass now comes in 2 flavours. The one-day York City Pass, which offers entry to 25 attractions, and the two, three or six-day York & Beyond Explorer Pass which gives entry to 50 attractions including entry to Castle Howard which is a Lamont family favourite. If you are an Ask pizza or pasta fan you can also get one of those free which is great news for people that stay at 17 Stonegate - a House of York holiday home as it’s just a 2 min walk away.

Visit York have also made it mobile phone friendly by introducing a new digital ‘mobile pass’ that can be downloaded straight to your phone which makes it even easier.
