Explore the history of York’s city walls

Are you planning on walking along York City walls this summer? City Walls Experience at Micklegate Bar is the perfect place to start your walk along the walls. 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 of the walls! 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. This new attraction is open from 4th April to 30th October 2022, 10am to 4pm.
