    Stop At: Museum Gardens Museum Street, York YO1 7FR England

    Once inside the walls we cross the River Ouse, then enter the Museum gardens, giving us the chance to look around St Mary’s Abbey. Historically this grand building was a very rich monastery, originally built in the 11th century home to the Benedictine Monks, it was dissolved in 16th century. Only a few walls remain, however you can still see the Abbots house and its various styles owing to years of change. Maybe your guide can point out the window belonging to the room where Henry VIII stayed!

    Stop At: 11 Shambles, York YO1 7LZ England

    As if by magic we get to the start of The Shambles, the medieval shopping street. Even though none of Harry Potter was filmed here, you can just imagine walking down Diagon Alley, now’s your chance to pick up a wand or broom! If you have children in your group they might catch a glimpse of one the many sculpted cats lurking here and all over the city.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Clifford's Tower, Tower Street, York YO1 9SA England

    Like many other towns and cities York also has a castle. Built in the traditional method as a motte and bailey castle by the Normans, it hides some particularly disturbing history about the Jewish community in 12th century. Only Clifford’s tower is intact today and is open to climb for stunning views of the city


    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Merchant Adventurers' Hall, Fossgate, York YO1 9XD England

    York has always been a centre of commerce, early residents in need of a venue for charity, worship and business commissioned the construction of the Merchant Adventurers Hall. Originally built in the 14th century, it has undergone several changes over the years, but remains in use to this day. This beautiful building is widely regarded as one of the best preserved medieval guildhalls in the world.


    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: York Minster, Minster Yard Deangate, York YO1 7HH England

    Like something from a fairytale, we wind our way through the quirky little alleyways. Stick with your guide and mind your head, you won’t have to worry about getting lost. Eventually we approach the magnificent structure of York Minster, the largest Gothic Cathedral north of the Alps. With your guide, you will explore both the past and the present of this grand building. Pausing during the tour there’s plenty of opportunities to admire the architecture, stained glass windows, contemporary art and much more.
