A mobile app will get a new update to celebrate York’s rich history.

The York BID launched the York Quest app to encourage families into the city to find hidden characters around York’s historic streets. The app launched during the holidays where families could find Santas hidden around the city centre. A new update will go live on 15th January and will feature eight famous historic characters.

You can download the free York Quest app from both Google Play and the Apple App Store.
