It was a beautiful day for a bus ride. So, we decided to take the Hop On/Off Bus tour and stop for the National Railroad Museum. The Railroad Museum is something we most likely wouldn’t have visited but all the guidebooks gave it high ratings and we found the ratings well deserved. I believe we spent close to two and a half hours at the Railroad Museum.

We have done several Hop On/Off Bus Tours. Some have been great such as Hong Kong. Others not so great such as Cape Town. The information is always good, the presenter or audio is always a crap shoot, and if the bus can’t or isn’t allowed to navigate to the sights then the ride is boring.

Note his jacket, the person sitting to his left with hood up – it was cool. Five days later the hottest recorded day in York’s history was 101 degrees.

Clifford Tower was a part of York Castle which no longer exists. This is the second Tower or Castle Keep. The first was destroyed in 1190 when the City’s Jews took refuge inside and eventually committed suicide to avoid being murdered by Christian rioters.
