York is one of England's most popular cities in England. Well known for its famous Minister and the Shambles, but it has a lot more to see. On this 3 hour easy paced walking tour, we discover many of its hidden gems, that most visitors to York rarely see. Your local guide will share secrets and facts about these locations that only the locals know.

York is a maze of ‘snickleways’ (the local word for alleyways or back streets), and you will explore many of the hidden ones, full of character and history, visit the quiet churches and the quaint buildings. You will also see many of the stranger and fascinating buildings and sights that were built before architecture was as it is today. You will also see parts of York’s darker side where the historic rogues and ladies lived and walked the streets. You will visit the old railway station and Walmgate Bar, said to be the finest gate in England. York has a strong connection to the Vikings, and you will discover much of that.

This tour is a must for seeing the sites of York that most people miss. Its ideal after taking the Golden Tours hop-on hop-off bus tour, which will show you the must see tourist attractions of this beautiful medieval city.
