This is an expensive place to visit, with long queues at peak time. Its interesting, you are transported through a Village, complete with all sensory enhancements! The history of the findings of the depths of York is presented in an attractive way, but the whole...More

The only highlight of this trip was being in the fast track queue even though I paid £1 extra for that. If I'd queued for 30 mins to get in here I'd have been livid. We were only in 25 mins, I know if you...More

Long queues for an attraction that wasn't really up to much when you got in, the kids were underwhelmed and it was relatively expensive, wouldn't trouble myself to return

Felt we should do something touristy having visited York several times. This was a good interactive way to learn about York's history. Loved that the excavation was under the glass floor so you could see what had been found. The mock village complete with sounds...More
