Au programme

We'll meet outside York Library for a gentle 3 hour Photowalk, giving us loads of time for stories & photos. Along the way, I will provide tips and advice on how to capture captivating images of the city you will want to share. This is a friendly walk in a small group and we always take the time to introduce ourselves so that you will feel part of the group.

We start with the stunning vaulted remains of the medieval hospital, the only surviving Roman walls you can walk on and the remains of the Roman fortress. We'll take the secret entrance into the enchanting Museum gardens to walk amongst the ruins of St Mary's Abbey. From there it's Henry VIII's glorious King's Manor and then through the ancient gateway for some spectacular and unusual views of York Minster. We will view the Minster up close and explore the alleyways to find the oldest house in the city, Barley Hall and the historic street of the ladies of the night. We will follow the Viking route back into the bustle, diverting into a stunning hidden church, you'll want to capture before we show you views of the Shambles most visitors miss. Then we take in York's best-kept secret Fossgate, before a hidden alley takes into a stunning Medieval Guildhall followed by a riverside walk to York Castle. Finally, it is a charming riverside walk before we complete our tour in the heart of the cit
Other things to note
This is mostly an easy walk on solid ground, however, it does involve some stairs to access the city walls. There will be opportunities for additional comfort breaks if required

A great tour. Like being guided round by a good friend - called John. We learned a lot and it was a great introduction to our week in York.

A great tour, John was very knowledgeable and a great story teller. He clearly has a passion for sharing his hints and tips to get a great photo shot and aimed to personalise the tour with our interests, would recommend.

A great walking tour filled with twists and turns of exciting discoveries most tourists miss. Photographic opportunities abound. John was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide.

Had a bit of trouble meeting John during the start of the tour (detailed below). The tour, however, was great - entertaining and good learning. I would not categorize it as an 'instagrammable tour' - I think it felt like a standard walking tour and we learnt quite a bit about history of York (which is great). He was knowledgeable and engaging. About the trouble at start (could have been a bit more considerate): We had a quick call with John to let him know we are coming in 5 mins and he guided us to meet at the museum park, and call him when we reach there. We reached the museum park and called him - he stopped receiving calls. After about 6 calls (over 30 mins) we ended up finding him talking to the group - we asked him if he was John and he welcomed us. It was a bit strange of him to stop receiving calls especially when he knew someone is due to join you in 5 minutes and bound to call to find your exact location. Its quite a big garden/park and we might have missed a lot more (and probably the entire tour) if we hadn't luckily bumped into him.
