מה נעשה

We'll meet outside York Library for a gentle 3 hour Photowalk, giving us loads of time for stories & photos. Along the way, I will provide tips and advice on how to capture captivating images of the city you will want to share. This is a friendly walk in a small group and we always take the time to introduce ourselves so that you will feel part of the group.

We start with the stunning vaulted remains of the medieval hospital, the only surviving Roman walls you can walk on and the remains of the Roman fortress. We'll take the secret entrance into the enchanting Museum gardens to walk amongst the ruins of St Mary's Abbey. From there it's Henry VIII's glorious King's Manor and then through the ancient gateway for some spectacular and unusual views of York Minster. We will view the Minster up close and explore the alleyways to find the oldest house in the city, Barley Hall and the historic street of the ladies of the night. We will follow the Viking route back into the bustle, diverting into a stunning hidden church, you'll want to capture before we show you views of the Shambles most visitors miss. Then we take in York's best-kept secret Fossgate, before a hidden alley takes into a stunning Medieval Guildhall followed by a riverside walk to York Castle. Finally, it is a charming riverside walk before we complete our tour in the heart of the cit
Other things to note
This is mostly an easy walk on solid ground, however, it does involve some stairs to access the city walls. There will be opportunities for additional comfort breaks if required

John is so knowledgeable about York and the historical context he gave as well as the way he linked it to current affairs was brilliant. He was a joy to be around and I really appreciated the time he took to personalise the tour around our interests. Highly recommended

Great fun & hugely informative. John had so much knowledge on the history of York. Excellent value. Only 4 of us on our tour so was personalised to our group. Definitely took away new & interesting historical & architectural facts. John had some great tips on photography. Would definitely recommend.

John was just fantastic in his historical story telling with key facts. He took us on a whistle-stop tour with historical anecdotes referring back to what we’d seen and ahead to what we would see. He engaged us with questions and tapped into our reasons for being in York and the history connected to our own areas. Just amazing! He kept you on the edge wanting more and more!

Without doubt one of the best guided tours I’ve ever been on. With so much history to convey our guide was an expert on all things York and English history. His knowledge was conveyed in a very friendly and inclusive way and we all had fun along the way. Three and a half hours later we’re in the pub for both a physical and mental rest! We would highly recommend this tour to all visitors. Thank you so much. 😀 Neal and Alex Up from London for a few days.
