A new “smart card” is offering free entry to more than 30 attractions in Ryedale and York.
People who buy the York Pass will also be able to take advantage of offers at cafes, restaurants, shops and buy discounted tickets to Dalby Forest, Castle Howard and the Sealife Centre at Scarborough.
It is now available as a one, two or three day consecutive adult or child pass from Pickering Tourist Information Centre.
“The York Pass gives both Ryedale residents and visitors to the area a chance to make real savings on a fantastic day out,“ said Angela Jones, Business Support Manager for Ryedale District Council.
“By using the Pass the more you see the more you save – what better reason is there for a great day out in Ryedale and the surrounding area.”
Kate McMullen, Head of Visit York, added: “The York Pass includes 32 top attractions in and around York.
“The Pass helps visitors plan their stays and put together longer itineraries, which means they book for longer and see more, which in turn benefits businesses in both the city and the region.”
Attractions that are offering free entry with the York Pass include Eden Camp modern history museum, Castle Howard, and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway as well as the Jorvik Viking Centre, York Minster and York’s Chocolate Story, among others.
For adults, the York Pass costs £36 for one day, £48 for two days and £58 for three days. For children, the cost is £20 for one day, £24 for two days and £28 for three days.
