We invite you to be a tourist in York Sat Jan 28th - Sun 29th 2017…for free!

York Residents’ Festival is your chance to explore the city and be a tourist for the weekend – for free! Organised by Visit York this annual Festival is our way of saying a HUGE ‘thank you’ for the warm welcome you give to York’s 7 million visitors. It’s a great way to discover York’s visitor attractions for free and wine and dine using our discounted offers.

This year you’ll have the chance to explore behind the scenes at places not usually open to the public and take advantage of some great dining offers. We hope you enjoy the weekend.

How do I take part?
