What's on

Current and upcoming events, exhibitions, talks and tours.

We are hard at work on some exciting new developments in our South Yard. These include creating a bigger and better miniature railway and building a temporary theatre for performances by York Theatre Royal. These improvements mean that our miniature railway, steam rides, play area and Depot are closed until the summer. There is still lots to see and do on your visit.
