Welcome to British summertime everyone – I hope you enjoyed your Easter breaks, whatever you got up to over the long weekend! But don’t for one second think the holidays are over – I’ll still be keeping you on top of all the latest and greatest travel opportunities across the UK and beyond, starting a little closer to home (for me at least) with a fantastic new opportunity for visitors to see the sights of Yorkshire.
The Yorkshire Pass, launched this month, is the UK’s first regional sightseeing pass, replacing the old York Pass that has long been popular with visitors to the historic city by offering big discounts on York‘s top attractions – including the fascinating Castle Museum and the always-entertaining Jorvik Viking Centre.
The good news for those planning on visiting York in the near future is that the revamped Yorkshire Pass will now take in even more of the city’s famous places, meaning you won’t have to pay a separate entry fee. But better still is that the reach of the pass has now been extended to take in all of Yorkshire, and now offers entry to 75 attractions across the county. That means you could take in everything from the majestic York Minster to exploring the mysteries of The Deep in Hull, and everything in-between!
Not only does the Yorkshire Pass give you completely free entry to these attractions, but you can also find associated benefits on restaurants, entertainment and car hire, if you want to enjoy the freedom of exploring Yorkshire with your own set of wheels.
So, on to the important details: visitors to Yorkshire can choose a 1 day, 2 day, 3 day or 6 day pass, depending how much of the region you’re keen to discover, and prices start from as low as £28. This is bound to be great news for Yorkshire’s tourism industry and open up the towns and cities of the area for more people to discover their fantastic offerings. Now we can only hope that other counties follow Yorkshire’s lead and introduce their own passes soon!
