The Taste Trails

Things are a bit different this year with 2 separate taste trails (called Minster and Castle) so we’ve tweaked the format of our Taste Trails. Not only can you visit and get great samples/discounts from local businesses but the ticket gives you access to several venues in the centre of York that will each offer sampling from the surrounding cafes, shops and restaurants.
Sampling locations are Coppergate Centre, Museum Gardens. Samples are available from 11am-4pm. £6 per person.

Tickets are limited for this event, we strongly recommend booking in advance here
