Going from London to York by train is easy, and is by far the best way of making a day trip to York from London. Trains to York leave from London's King's Cross station, and in the morning there are direct trains every thirty minutes.

The journey time is about two hours. You will need to leave York at about 7-8pm to return to London, as later trains sometimes require a change, and the last train, at the time of writing, is 9.40pm, arriving in London just after midnight. There are then no further trains till early the following morning.
The York train station is a busy station and is on the main east coast London-Scotland route. It is an easy 10-15 minute walk to the city centre, and the National Railway Museum is naturally close by the station.
