Things to do in York

With some of the best museums, outdoor spaces, art galleries, and more found in Yorkshire, the Clear Choice team has pulled together some of our top things you can do and take advantage of in York. 

Kickstarting this list is Eureka!  And no, not Eureka as you’ve finally found out all the things you didn’t know about Huddersfield, but rather The National Children’s Museum based in Halifax Eureka!

Things to do in York

This museum is perfect for all the family, inspiring curiosity; it is the only fully interactive museum whose exhibits are 100% dedicated to children aged between 0-11. 

In fact, they have over 400 interactive, hands-on exhibitions, all designed to inspire children to ask questions about the world around them. 

With six different galleries to explore, you can rest assured to make a full day and more at Eureka. 

The Bagshaw Museum and Wilton Park offer fun and fascination for all.  Housed in a gothic mansion, Bagshaw Museum once belonged to a Victorian Mill owner, set in 36 acres of beautiful parkland and ancient woodland. 

With unusual collections from all over the world on display, you can also take in the stunning scenery of the bowling greens, tennis courts, playgrounds, café, and more. 

Now, if you’re a bit of a culture vulture, Leeds Art Gallery could be right up your street.  Thought of as one of the best contemporary art galleries in the country, this FREE art gallery houses an impressive and permanent collection of 20th-century British art.  As well as hosting an array of temporary exhibitions too! 

However, The Royal Armouries is one place that, as an industrial cleaning team in Huddersfield, we don’t think there’d be enough man-hours in the day to get through dusting all those swords…. but we’d give it a go! 

With a vast display of swords and armour from around the world, you can uncover the secrets of the past, exploring over 2,500 objects on display throughout the six galleries. 

Could now be the time to step into your own medieval tale at the Royal Armouries Leeds? 

If you’re visiting York for the first or the hundredth time, we would definitely recommend The Shadows of York Ghost Walk. 

Voted as the best small attraction in York, this ghost walk helps to bring the history of the city alive. 

The guided walk takes place around the streets and alleys of the medieval city, where your guide will regale the tales of York’s tragic past. 

This is a great, if not spinetingling, experience! 

Now we could not continue to talk about York and not mention The National Railway Museum!  Home to the biggest collection of engineering brilliance and iconic locomotives around, the National Railway Museum has something for everyone. 

Celebrating the past, present, and future of our railways, the museum has often been described as a “fantastic historical time capsule,” and we couldn’t agree more. 

We’re confident you will be blown away and leave York in awe after a visit here. 

If you’re looking to find out some interesting facts about Huddersfield, then the Tolson Museum and Ravensknowle Park is a fascinating day out. 

Offering an inquisitive look into the town of Huddersfield, you’ll be able to look through a variety of collections, discover the museum’s top ten treasures, explore the history of the Hall itself, and how it made its way into the Huddersfield history books! 

With areas for children to play as well as an outdoor playground, this is one of the most unique, not so little gems to look out for in Huddersfield. 

The city of York and the town of Huddersfield have a lot to offer, including, of course, ourselves!  A commercial and industrial cleaning business based in Huddersfield, we provide a cleaning service that is second to none – if we do say so ourselves!
