York Castle and Castle Museum

Get ready to take a tantalising trip through time as you step into York Castle Museum's world-famous recreated Victorian street, Kirkgate.

The first street of its kind, visited by 30 million people, is alive with the sights, sounds and colourful characters of York more than 100 years ago. Step inside the shops and meet the fascinating folk who work there.

Explore the rest of this amazing museum of everyday life and find authentic household room scenes, toys and clothes from the past, Civil War and Second World War galleries and the Condemned Cell where highwayman Dick Turpin spent his last night.
