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.

Rare in this country to be able to walk on a city wall and this is a good experience offering views across York coupled with pleasant excercise.

We had a blast going along the York city walls. The grounds around them were beautiful. York is a very beautiful town with flowers everywhere.

Good to see a bit of history of the city and the different bars (gates) offering their own story, with museums and historical information thrown in. Cafes and bars at different points to stop for something to eat and drink as well. It's also nice to see the city without having to be wary of traffic as well.

On a sunny day a stroll around the city walls is a great way to pass the time. You can get some fantastic views of old buildings and their gardens that are simply not possible at street level.
