Davygate. Deangate. Stonegate. And now in York, Navigate.
It seems like every road in York, England ends in “gate”. So how’s a wide-eyed traveler supposed to get around? Simple. The York City Sightseeing Tour from Rail Europe makes it easy and fun. With a double-decker open-air tour bus that lets you hop on and off as desired , or start by taking the whole circuit to get an overview and plan your day. Either way, you have 24-hours to tour the highlights of York. Visit the Minster, the largest gothic church in northern Europe and one of the United Kingdom’s most spectacular cathedrals. Or why not invade the Jorvik Viking Center? Surely you wouldn’t want to miss the ancient timbered houses on winding cobblestone streets, a living medieval museum. And since, in York, cars are banned from the center, everything is this tour bus plus two feet away. So when it comes to York there’s no better way to, well, investigate.
