Overview

Experience York at its most atmospheric around sundown, after the tourist hordes have departed but before the night begins. This evening stroll hits the highlights, including York Minster, the City Walls and Shambles, but also takes you deep into the “Snickelways”, a medieval warren of secret passages, shortcuts and hidden alleys. Guides carry iPads with multimedia to bring the tour to life, while you’ll take home a map of York.
  • Experience York’s medieval center by twilight on an evening walking tour
  • Follow in the footsteps of Henry VIII and see 2,000 years of history
  • Guide provides lively commentary, with multimedia input from an iPad

So much history.......

Our guide, Alfred made this an interesting walk, despite the weather. Off the usual tourist route to see some of the other sites of the city and learn more of the history of York, there is so much to see & hear about. Would recommend this tour and Alfred as a guide.

I really enjoyed this walking tour with Sarah. She was very informative and told us lots of nuggets of information. I really appreciated the nice slow walk as my feet were killing me from all the walking I had done all day! I went away to York on my own and she made me feel totally part of the group. Would highly recommend.

Alfred was very friendly and informative. He catered for all the varying ages in our group. The children in our group had many questions to ask and he happily answered them at their level of understanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and highly recommend him.

Alfred was knowledgable, engaging and fun! A great introduction to York on our first evening here. The children (7 & 12) learned so much in such a short time - well worth it.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2020
Hi Sapna - really pleased you enjoyed it. It helps when the kids are as bright and engaged and already clued up about history as Devon and Zane... thanks again. Alfred
