Kick off your visit on the 7th (Mon): take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, appreciate the extensive heritage of Church Street Historic District, and then explore and take pictures at Battleship USS ALABAMA.

Plan my day in Mobile using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

York, UK to Mobile is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from York to Mobile due to the time zone difference. In January, Mobile is somewhat warmer than York - with highs of 18°C and lows of 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can drive to Orange Beach.
