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.

“lovely walk”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Had a lovely walk around York using the wall, something that I had never done, but it was a real different approach to observing York, the spring flowers were just coming out in abundance, may come back in a few weeks to see them in all there glory.

great way to get about & see the sights of the city, museums peppered along the wall if you want them, or just a great walk

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Pleasant walk around the city with some good views around the Minster side. More information boards are required en route. More benches are needed so you can sit and enjoy sights for longer. BEWARE sections of the wall has steep drops with no barriers.

“Nice walk”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Lovely walk and especially in cold but sunny Spring weather, good to catch some sun. At the end, climb down the stairs and visit the corner cafe - Dickinson's for good ice cream, opposite the York castle museum

“Great stroll”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Loved the stroll around the city walls - I would recommend it if you are visiting York - great for avoiding the stag & hen dos!
