Coach Hire and Minibus Hire in York

The historic city of York is known for its iconic castle and city walls that provide a striking contrast when set against the thriving modern city it is today. Key cultural sites you may want to visit include York Minster, the National Railway Museum and the JORVIK Viking Centre, each of which will tell you more about the rich history of North Yorkshire. For something a little different, The Ghosts of York Treasure Hunt offers a chance to dive into the spooky elements of the city while solving clues along the way.

The York Barbican is the place to be when you want some of the finest live entertainment in the country and it’s where you can find everything from headline bands to standup comedy gigs.

Turn your trip into a day out you’ll remember by taking a coach to Skosh or Delrio’s for a group dinner and you’ll have the perfect end to a memorable day. And because you’ve booked with SMC Coach Hire, you’ll never have to compromise when it comes to arrival or departure times.
