Please note there is no walk-ins on the day and tickets usually sell out within a few days of release. You MUST book a tour ticket in advance to visit York Castle Museum.
The tours will take place on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, throughout the day and daily during half term. Pre-booking via our website is essential.
To ensure social distancing the tours are limited to a small number of people.  As these are specialist events rather than part of our standard opening, YMT Cardholders will need to pay to for these tours. We hope to be able to announce standard opening for York Castle Museum in the near future.
