Private 2-Hour York Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Agree a departure time, and meet your guide in central York. Let them know what you’d like to see: your itinerary can be tailored from start to finish around your preferences and any themes of interest. Any entrance fees are at your own expense.

    Then, set off into the history-infused streets, hearing about York’s Roman, Anglo Saxon, Viking, and Norman history. Whatever you choose to see, your guide will proffer interesting background on the sights that’s illuminating and enjoyable.

    Perhaps visit York Minster, one of the world’s most stunning Gothic cathedrals, and admire Clifford’s Tower, the last remnant of York Castle. Alternatively, just meander through the timeworn cobbled streets, stopping to see and learn about landmarks like the City Gates, 16th-century St. William’s College, and St. Mary’s Abbey, the ruins of one England’s wealthiest medieval Benedictine monasteries.

    You may want to dip into York Castle Museum or the Yorkshire Museum, or call at the Jorvik Viking Centre to learn about 9th-century Viking life. Many guides are also involved with York University, so if you wish, can provide you with insight into the university’s workings and history.

    After two hours, your tour concludes in the city center when your guide departs.

    What a wonderful way to see Oxford. Worth doing and the two hours go very quickly. We did approximately 5000 steps so not too arduous. We loved all the facts and history and enjoyed viewing the historic buildings. Would definitely recommend this.

    Hi the price is per person. 19.00 GBP it is well worth it. There is also a free two hour walk and based on tips. The paying tour we did had about 12 people in total in the group. Check out their website
