Take the kids to visit one of the historic gateways into the city – and discover 2,000-year stories involving battles, imprisonment and near destruction! Meet some of the characters whose stories are intertwined with Micklegate Bar: a princess, a Royalist in the English Civil War and an early 20th-century policeman who made the gatehouse his home. Plus, Micklegate Bar is the perfect place to start your walk around the York city walls. This new attraction is open 11th February - late October 2023.
