Tour Guide


Discover the history of York's beer & pub heritage and much more by taking a guided walk through York City Centre. Each walk covers the history of approximately 15 pubs as well as the centuries of events, people (and spirits) associated with them. The guide is an experienced volunteer city guide.

Walks start from the Royal Oak and last for 1.5-2 hours (with an optional refreshment break).

Private tours are also offered for groups of 6 or more on mutually convenient dates as well as those published.

The walks are sponsored by the Royal Oak, Goodramgate; Olde Starre, Stonegate and the Black Swan Peaseholme Green

All money raised from the walks will support Keep Your Pet, a charity run by Age Uk York in collaboration with RSPCA York & District. This project has been established to help older people look after their pets at times of health or other difficulties.

Further information can be obtained and reservations made through contacting Keith Martin on 07506570234 or
