Best of York on Foot

Select Option


The story of York is the story of England in wood, stone and chocolate. Let our expert guides lead you on a ninety-minute journey through 2000 years, from the arrival of the Romans to the birth of the KitKat. This family-friendly walking tour includes all the key sights - including the Minster and Shambles - though we will also lead you deep into the medieval maze, or Snickelways. This is the secret side of York you would never be able to experience from an open-topped bus!
