City Walls Experience at Micklegate Bar
Take the kids to visit one of the historic gateways into the city – Micklegate Bar – before it closes for the winter season. Discover 2,000-year stories involving battles, imprisonment and near destruction of York’s walls! Learn about 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. As you make your way up to the very top floor of this historic building (over 700 years old!) you can discover a map of York’s city walls, a flyover video over the city and other activities to entertain the little Vikings! Open until 5th November.
