York YHA is in a good location to take the Ouse riverwalk into the city. The hop-on/hop-off bus pass both provide a good orientation and transporatation. Phil and I split up as we anticipated different interests.

York Museum and Gardens included ruins. York Castle Museum was a little pricey, but turned out to be quite interesting. You could spend all day, as many displays include a good deal of reading. The portion including the prison was interesting. History of incarceration. And projected video images on cell walls with inmates describing the conditions.

A good chunk of the day was meandering in and out of churches. I really missed the grandkids when visiting the National Railway Museum...they would have loved it. The people working there truly enjoy sharing knowledge about the history of railroads.
