“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We had a lovely walk along the walls, and there are lovely views if the weather is good. There are a few places when you have to avoid on-going renovations, but we didn't have a problem finding a way round.

“Frustrating blockages & diversions, but good views”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I joined the walls by the cathedral. I did enjoy some lovely views arround the back of the cathedral and took a few photos. The info boards were interesting to read.

I was unable to walk for more than a few meters before coming to a blockage. The diversion was not well sign posted. I eventually made it up to the eastgate clock having asked fro directions. The stairway smelled like a mens toilet!

Soon after the gate, I came accross a second blockage. This time there were no signs showing an alternative route so I gave up in the end.

“Roman Walls”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Walk the Walls to circumvent the City, takes you past the Horse Track, ( the Oldest & shortest in the Country?) along by the River & next to the Cathedral.

“Inaccessible”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We love to walk the walls when we visit York so decided to give Chester a try. Unfortunately we tried from two different locations but both times didn't get far as they were closed off areas. His may have been a safety issue as a walk along the side of the walls by the canal had flowers left where some people had died following a fall - so maybe these issues are currently being addressed
