We took in two different sections of the York Walls on separate days. We walked from Monk Bar to Bootham Bar one day which skirts around the grounds of the University's Dene and is a very peaceful walk.
The second section we took was from Micklegate Bar around to Barker Tower at Lendal Bridge. We took this route as an easier way to get to the Minster without having to navigate the busy roads as we did the previous day. It offers some pleasant views, but be aware that there is a long section with no railings to one side and if you've got children with you it could be stressful! I will try and upload a photo of this section to illustrate.
The walls are free to walk around and offer a less busy route, or a pleasant stroll if you're so inclined.
