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.

A lovely walk that took us around 3 hours including a 30 minute break. It was narrow in places. but lovely views and very interesting. Lots of benches on route. Nice views of the Minster as well.

Took a walk around from Micklegate to the main bridge by the Minster (lendal bridge) Good way to travel around York avoiding the traffic and watching the city The wall continues by the Minster and has two more long runs which give commanding views aver York
