How does it work?
Your York Pass will be valid from the time that you first use it in an attraction. From that moment, it will be valid for the amount of time you have chosen (1, 2, 3, or 6 days). The first day will end at 11:59 pm regardless of the time that you first used it.
The 2 and 6 day passes must be used on consecutive days, while the 3 day pass can be used over a period of 6 days, allowing you to go on other day trips without missing out of any of the attractions included in the York Pass.
The York Pass permits one-time free access to each attraction.
Collecting your York Pass
Collect your York Pass from the Visit York Information Centre, located at 1 Museum Street, York. The office is open daily between 9 am and 5 pm, except Sundays, when it opens between 10 am and 4 pm.
While you will have to select a specific date when you make your purchase, you will be able to collect your York Pass on any day. Equally, the York Pass is valid from the time of first use, not from the day of collection.
