Highlights

The story of York is the story of England in wood, stone and chocolate. Let us take you on a private journey though 2000 years of history, from the dawn of Christianity to the birth of the KitKat.Enjoy the exclusive service of a fully qualified and licensed guide as you head deep into the heart of the medieval maze; exploring secret corners (we call them ‘Snickelways’) most visitors never get to see. Discover how Romans, Vikings, Normans and Tudors all came here and left their mark, in a city still surrounded by a circuit of limestone walls. We will ensure you don’t miss any of the highlights - including the world-famous Shambles - but if you have any particular areas of interest, please get in touch. It’s your tour and we want you to see York your way!
