White Rose York Tours, we provide a free three hour tour that is like stepping back through all of England's history. For two thousand years, York has been at the centre of the nation's affairs, and our self-employed guides will bring that history to life in an entertaining and ery informative way as they lead you through lush parks and narrow lanes, past grand churches and palaces, by ruined castles and abbeys and along the historic city walls.

Our tours run in both the English and Spanish languages. No need to book, just turn up 10 to 15 minutes early and tell us which language you would like.

Our walking tour includes
York minster and the Liberty of St Peter
City Walls and Gatehouses
St Mary's Abbey and the Museum Gardens
The Shambles
Clifford's Tower and the Castle Museum
Roman and Viking Invasions
