What to bring

You are advised not to bring more than two suitcases and one piece of hand luggage. If you have more than the suggested number of suitcases we may have to ask you to travel to York at your own expense, due to limited luggage space on the coach. See information on what to bring.

If you are unable to arrive in time, you could consider taking a flight the day before and staying in nearby hotels overnight. Alternatively, see our information about travelling to York from UK airports to arrange your own travel.
