Why visit York?
The history of York is the story of England in stone, wood and chocolate. Western Christianity was born here, so was the KitKat. No other place in Britain preserves so much of the country's past in such a concise area. From the Romans to the Vikings and the Railways, the streets of York are a living picture book of 2000 years of history.
YORKTOUR is the longest-established walking tour company in York and has been welcoming visitors to the city for over forty years. Our friendly, informal guides aim to assist you with their local knowledge rather than bombard you with facts. We can provide a range of languages including French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. All YorkTour guides are qualified to take visitors into the cathedral.
