    On foot: It's a 10 minute walk to the museum from the centre of town, and the route is well signposted. But for a quicker, more convenient route from the city centre why not catch the Road Train which runs from the museum's entrance to York Minster.

    By Road: The museum is clearly signposted from all approaches to the city. The visitor car park is on Leeman Road (£9 per day). Accessible parking is free, and available outside the museum's City Entrance.

    Parking: with charge. Coach parking also onsite.

    Park & Ride:
    With six cleverly located sites surrounding the city centre getting into York has never been easier. www.yorkparkandride.co.uk
