Or you can follow the signs from the city centre. We're signposted from York's ring road if you're coming by car or coach.

School coaches can park free, but you'll need to book a space in advance.

Risk Assessments

Our guidelines are designed to assist you as a teacher or group leader when you complete your own risk assessment during a preliminary visit here. It lists areas you can visit, and raises awareness of the possible risks. Please remember that a risk assessment document is only valid if completed by a teacher/group leader.
