Join us from Saturday 3rd March - Thursday 25th April for York's Character Trail, featuring the Snooks with books!

21 Snooks are scattered throughout York, including our 'All Creatures Great and Small' inspired Snook at Poppleton Bar Park & Ride. Wander down York's cobbled streets to discover a new Snook at every turn - each Snook is sponsored by a local business and has its own identity.

You can download the Snook trail leaflet and map here to plan your adventure, then head on over to our Poppleton Bar Park & Ride page to begin your journey into the city.

  • £3.80 for an Adult Return bus ticket, with 3 kids free! Buy your ticket on the First Bus App
