“Good overview”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

A gentle daunder round the walls took us 2 hours and gave a good feel for the layout of the city and an overview of many of the attractions. There is a good interactive map at http://www.explorethewalls.com/walls-map/ but a pocket paper version would have been useful, Perhaps we didn't look hard enough at the Tourist Information Office

“City overview”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

You see about all you need to see from the walls and it is cheaper than the open top bus! Seriously, it is a lovely walk though it does have lots of steps if you do the complete circuit. It is very possible to walk the full distance in one go. I have done that in the past but not on my most recent visit this past weekend so I hesitate to give a time, but bearing in mind the steps, it is not something that should daunt anyone except the very unfit and it really is a very beautiful walk taking in views of the cathedral, river, roman remains, racecourse, medieval buildings, whatever. At various points along the way there are information boards telling what is there or what to look out for. It is also very easy to just to short stretches at a time if that is easier.

“Lovely walks”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

The wall is approximately 2 miles in length is a good place to start if you're new to the city. Can get on/off anywhere and meander along looking at the sites. Lots of photo opportunities for cathedral, canal and old buildings. Plenty of cafes for refreshments on the way and lots of history to read about. It has to be done!
