Getting around York on foot is easy and fun.


Walking gives you the chance to explore York's secret corners, layered history, ancient streets and hidden gardens.


With illustrated maps and photos, Walk York guides you through ten routes (from one to six miles long, 1.5km to 10km) and more suggestions, from a simple stroll round the city walls to a hike round Castle Howard; walk beside the city's rivers or pub crawl round the bars.

Discover Roman York or the city built on chocolate, the haunted highways or the streets straight out of Harry Potter.


Find the city's must-see icons, hidden treasures and lucky cat sculptures; with optional visits to famous visitor attractions like JORVIK Viking centre or the National Rail Museum, these walks can fit the time you have and appeal to all tastes and ages.
