About York’s Giant Christmas Card Trail
A short easy walk through the parks and historic centre of York to discover the giant's Christmas cards scattered round the town. So unique and Insta-worthy, your friends will be amazed when they see your pictures!
There's a glimpse of detail from each card here to give you a clue, but you'll need to visit to see the real thing. These cards are totally unique and are supersized reproductions of nineteenth century cards in the York Residency Museum collection.
A great family activity which includes two parks, families will especially enjoy Avon Park with its superb play and picnic facilities.
