What can I say, this just made out children's day. For those with young children this is an absolute must and can keep them occupied for a few hours at least. Ours are 2.5 and 1.5 and they just loved walking around (slowly in some...More
If you enjoy visiting museums, then purchasing a Brussels Card is a must!

The Pass gives...More

I haven't been to York for years, so I'm not familiar with what they have there now but, as has been said, everything is available in English.
