Join us on one of our Walking Tours around the City Walls
The perfect place to start your walk around the most intact walls of any English city.
Tours start from City Walls Experience at Micklegate Bar at 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM daily.
Join a guide from York Archaeology for a tour of the city walls from above and below. Tours start from Micklegate Bar, where you will learn all about one of the most important gateways into our historic city, and lead on to Bailie Hill and Tower Two, where York Archaeology are undertaking work on one of the city’s earliest stone-built interval towers. Not far from here, you will also learn about the nightmarish Bitchdaughter Tower Prison! Finally, the tour explores Victoria Bar and Bishophill, which both have ties to York’s Roman past.
Created by the team behind the award-winning JORVIK Viking Centre, explore three floors of this important gateway and discover more about the historic walls surrounding the city of York.
