There is no better feeling then knowing that your birthday is right around the corner. Not only are you getting a day dedicated to you, but you are also going to be able to spend some time with all those people who mean the most to you. 

When it is your birthday, you are likely to want to think about the best things to do with your nearest and dearest. After all, you are going to want to have plenty of fun on your special day. 

To help you out a little, we have put together our guide to some of the most unique birthday celebration ideas in York. 

Take a cruise down The Ouse

There is something amazingly picturesque about being able to cruise down a river and The Ouse is no different. Much like many other city rivers, The Ouse will take you through the entire city and down towards the Humber Estuary. Of course, you can take a walk along the riverside paths, but if you really want to see the city from the best point of view, then you should definitely book in one of the regular cruises. 

Visit the Shambles

The name might make it sound like the least tempting place to spend your birthday at, but The Shambles is actually an incredibly quaint and fascinating spot to spend some time. A perfectly preserved street, showing you just how York used to be. The Shambles is actually an old English word for Slaughterhouse and you will see butcher’s hooks out the front of many of the buildings, just to remind you of its rather grisly history.  

Book in a comedy show at the Grand Opera House

Spending your birthday laughing with friends really does sound like an amazing idea; and for the best laughs you are going to want to visit the Grand Opera House. There are a wide variety of theatre shows for you to take in at this amazing venue, however, for guaranteed laughs, you should definitely see one of the comedy shows that are frequently part of the programme. 

Take a Ghost Bus Tour around the city 

Being scared might not seem like the best birthday treat out there, but booking on one of our amazing Ghost Bus Tours of York can actually be one of the best birthday treats possible. Not only is a great way to see everything that the city has to offer, but it is also great fun too. You will learn plenty of freaky facts about the history of York and you will be treated to a fantastic theatre show on wheels at the same time too. 

Now you know the amazing things that you can do in York, why not make plans to spend your special day with those who mean the most to you? We are sure that you won’t ever get bored with so many great choices and such a fascinating city.
