What you'll do

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
