CitySightseeing York, which featured in full in last week’s issue, is inviting residents and students to discover the delights on their doorstep every Sunday at a special discount. From Sunday 13 September any York resident with a York Card, issued by City of York Council at its libraries, can take advantage of CitySightseeing York’s discounts – along with any student holding a York student ID card.
Both cards give discounts on Sundays of up to 43% on the regular price of adult and family tour tickets, which are valid for 24 hours from the time of issue. This makes an adult ticket £10 – saving £6 or 37% on normal price – and a family ticket £20 – a saving of £15 or 43%. Discount tour tickets are available from tour drivers on the day of travel by showing the relevant card.
CitySightseeing York General Manager Ben Mansfield said: “This is a great opportunity for locals and students alike to safely discover all that York has to offer with the perfect vantage point to see great landmarks and discover the city’s amazing story.
“Each circular tour takes just under an hour to make its way around the city, giving unrivalled views of all the most famous sights including York Minster, the City Walls, Clifford’s Tower, and even the final resting place of highwayman Dick Turpin.
“For locals and students, it’s the fascinating facts as told by our live tour guides who bring York’s history to life in their own distinctive style that really makes this a great Autumn day out for families and students living right here in our city.”
