York is perhaps one of the most underrated cities in the North of England, due to its picturesque nature, range of family-friendly activities and variety of delicious eateries. It is also very accessible from most UK cities, making it a great option for a fun day out.

So, if you’re looking at trains to York this Easter and need some ideas that will keep you and the kids entertained all day long, look no further:

York’s Chocolate Story

Learning everything about the nation’s favourite treat is interesting for all ages. You will be given a guided tour through 4000 years of chocolate history, and you will learn all about famous brands such as KitKat whilst participating in educational and tasty workshops.

Make sure to visit the gift shop after your trip to try a little piece of York’s finest chocolate.

National Railway Museum

For young train enthusiasts, the National Railway Museum is a must-visit, especially because their entry is free!

As well as marvelling at the abundance of railway-related objects, you can also participate in the museum’s ‘Flying Scotsman VR experience’ and the interactive ‘Wonderlab: The Bramall Gallery’. These special events will allow the fascinating railway history to come to life.

JORVIK Viking Centre

Rambunctious little ones will love the Viking Centre, and you will be fascinated by all of the Viking history. This immersive experience is fun for all the family, as it incorporates the sounds, sights and smells of 10th Century York.

The actors are fabulous, and the rides are great for all ages, making this a must-see attraction whilst visiting York.

York Leisure Centre

If it’s a rainy day, the York Leisure Centre might be your best bet. There is a huge array of activities for you to get stuck into, and if you live nearby, you could even consider a membership to save money in the long run.

Some of the most popular activities include swimming, soft play, clip and climb and an abundance of kids’ sports. You could even take a fitness class of your own whilst your little ones are enjoying themselves.

Harry Potter Experiences

There are many Harry Potter-themed activities for young witches and wizards in York. Visit the famous Shambles which is rumoured to have inspired J.K. Rowling’s vision for Diagon Alley, and here you will find The Shop that Must Not Be Named as well as The Potions Cauldron.

You can also play a magical game of mini golf at Hole in the Wand and take a tour of The Wizard Walk of York. Whatever you choose, there are plenty of magical experiences for all the family to enjoy.
