York Walking Tour including York Minster

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Choose a morning or afternoon departure, then meet your guide at Stonegate in central York to begin. Since its settlement in 71 AD, York has seen brutal warfare, political upheaval and industrial breakthrough, and today remains widely considered among the UK’s finest cities.
    During your walking tour, stroll through the historic streets with your guide and take in top sites of interest including Bedern Hall, Clifford’s Tower, Fairfax House, King’s Manor, the Multangular Tower, St. Mary’s Abbey, Stonegate, and St. William’s College. Along the way, learn of powerful figures such as Emperor Constantine, Guy Fawkes, and Richard III who helped shape the city we see today.
    Afterward, visit York Minster (own expense) — one of the largest cathedrals in northern Europe. Admire features including the Gothic nave and the 14th-century West Window, and marvel at the medieval stained glass you find. Select the upgraded tour option to include York Minster in your tour.
    When your time in York Minster comes to an end, return to your departure point in central York to conclude your tour.
