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.

Fabulous! If you enjoy walking then you mustn't miss the opportunity to walk around these walls when visiting York. With stunning views of the City and steeped in History - be prepared for lots of steps along the way. (Not recommended for people unsteady on their feet).

Been to York a few times but never walked the city walls. Nice little walk around the city , not suitable for prams or wheelchairs. Benches around the area for a stop and rest and take in the views of the church

We spent a full afternoon walking the entire circuit of the York City Walls, visiting various things along the way. It was raining, and we got soaked through, but we had such a great afternoon! It gave us a different view of York, and we got a bit of exercise as a bonus!

For anyone who geocaches, there is a great little series around the wall.

A pleasant walk with plenty of interesting views to enjoy and photograph. Great way of spotting other places to visit too!

Great wall to walk on and it's is free but the part we walked on had no railing so not safe for small kids and prams. This was at the South side.
