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.

The walls are in sections and don't completely surround the city as the rivers form a natural barrier in some areas. There can be a bit of climbing up and down steep steps in some places but the actual walls provide a good, well maintained walkway to view the city from.

Great to see different views of York
Hard work carrying a push chair up and down the steps but worth it for the views.

Take an afternoon walk along the age old bar walls, they run around the city centre and provide information at check points. Very good views

Great to visit and walk along the walls of York - especially on a sunny day. Along the walls there are a number of nice cafes to get a drink or food in

When we visited, it was a very rainy day and the walls were quite slippery, check the weather! Despite being many signs saying no dogs, there were dogs on the walls and even poo in places. But it was still a very enjoyable walk and it was very easy to go round all of the walls in a full loop.
