Our littlest viking turned two today – happy birthday to her! – and our eldest’s birthday is just before Christmas. So we know how hard it is to get people to focus on birthdays when they’re thinking about witches and wizards or Father Christmas and Rudolph. Kids have birthdays all year round, and our handy guide to the best children’s birthday parties in York is here to help. Check out the Birthday Parties section of our website for our pick of the best active parties, parties at the attractions, foodie parties, crafty parties, outdoorsy parties and party entertainers in York. Dodgy homemade cake optional.
