York Quest Trail App

The York BID have launched the ‘York Quest’ AR (augmented reality) mobile app which features themed trails throughout the year, encouraging families into the city to find a series of characters who are hidden around York’s historic streets. 

Once you have found a character there is a fun interactive element to enjoy. You can also take a photo and share on social media. The York Quest app is free to use and available now on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. This app allows families to safely experience the city, in a new and interactive way.

The York Quest App was first trialled at Christmas with the ‘Santa Search’. The app now features four regularly changing seasonal trails to keep it fresh. 

New to the app is the ‘Travel Through Time’ quest – a permanent trail featuring iconic characters from York’s history which is now available all year round.
