York City Walls

A defining element of the city are York’s City Walls, which wrap around the entirety of the historic inner city as it was during Roman and Medieval times. Taking roughly 2 hours to complete a walk around the city walls gives you and your students a unique look at the city with elevated views providing you with glimpses of the city you might not see normally. Primarily medieval the walls still feature key elements of Roman architecture such as the Multangular Tower which connects to the walls around the Yorkshire Museum and Museum Gardens. If your group doesn’t want to commit to the full length of the walls you can join and leave the trail at certain ‘gates’ around the city with one conveniently located near the York Castle Museum and Clifford’s Tower, offering your group the opportunity to explore the walls prior to visiting the other attractions York has to offer.
