Heading out and still wondering what to do in York? Keep reading and the information below will clear up any questions you may have about the city.

One of the first things to do in York is to visit the old town, a point of attraction for tourism in the city. You can see the Clifford Tower, one of the two towers that the Normans built on each side of the river. The tower is one of the must-see attractions in York. The west tower no longer stands, but the east tower was reconstructed in the thirteenth century.

Another one of the places to visit in York is the Castle Museum, which is one of the most important ethnographic museums in the UK. Next on the list of things to see in York is the Debtor's Prison, built in 1705 by Sir John Vanbrugh. It is an extension of the museum, with a collection of everyday life on its first floor and arms on the second.

Culturally, the City of York Art Gallery is very important. It is a gallery with paintings by Guardi, Lely, Reynolds, and Domenichino and is one of the must-see York attractions for art lovers. Some York activities for religious tourists include the Cathedral and the Church of All Saints, a mid-fourteenth century building which has striking stained glass and works of art.
