Owner description: No visit to York is complete without a stroll along part of the 2 miles of historic walls that have protected the city for nearly 2000 years. The walls are completely free to walk, however bespoke guided tours can be booked with your own personal tour guide, meeting you at a time and place to suit you, and showing you the extensive hidden history to be found along the walls.

The walls are an important part of the atmosphere of York, and it is fun to walk on them and get a view of the city.

A different view of the city and take the opportunity to meander down into the streets frequently - that way you learn SO MUCH mre. Coffee in the Barbican, shopping in the Shambles, pondering the Roman origins etc, etc. oh, and a great way to walk off a hearty English breakfast!

Free guided tour of the city including the walls by a knowledgeable local, takes around 2 hours but well worth it plus its free!!! A must do on everyones list.

The weather is not great however it did not diminished the view of the city of York. A few more signs to point out places of interest would increase the experience of the visit.

A leisurely stroll round the wall took us 4 hours as we stopped off at various tourist spots along the way, and rejoining the wall using the very clearly posted maps. It was a great day out and I'd recommend the wall to everyone who visits York!
