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.

We didn't walk the whole way round. I think that could get boring. We did the North East quadrant which went past the Minster which we enjoyed

Truly worth a walk around all or any part of the walls . As mentioned in previous reviews there are ample access points via stairs and each section has fascinating detail about age etc . The history made me appreciate how important York has been over the centuries

not for the infirm this one. you can spend a good couple of hours walking the walls round the city, even longer if you leave the wall to eat and drink and the return to the walk. some amazing sites to see

beautifully kept good walk round and free to do in your own time, good views over York and the river. very pretty flower beds around the walls , it was a pity the canadian geese eat the tops of the flowers, there did seem to be a lot of them and a lot of headless flowers.
