Choose a morning or afternoon departure, then meet your guide at Stonegate in central York to begin. Since its settlement in 71 AD, York has seen brutal warfare, political upheaval and industrial breakthrough, and today remains widely considered among the UK’s finest cities.

During your walking tour, stroll through the historic streets with your guide and take in top sites of interest including Bedern Hall, Clifford’s Tower, Fairfax House, King’s Manor, the Multangular Tower, St. Mary’s Abbey, Stonegate, and St. William’s College. Along the way, learn of powerful figures such as Emperor Constantine, Guy Fawkes, and Richard III who helped shape the city we see today.

Our tour guide, Caroline, was very knowledgeable regarding the history of York and the best places to visit on this short walking tour. She also gave us great recommendations for places to visit on our own after the tour and good places to eat.

The price includes the Minster ticket btw, as opposed to another tour by the same operator that does not. Amazing way to see the highlight of the city, and the guide knew her stuff.

Wish I could remember our guide's name. Darn. I loved that it was a private tour with just him and my group of 5. We could ask all the questions we wanted. He even gave us a few tips on where to go eat or where we could find a certain pub! I enjoyed this tour.
