York's Hidden History
York's Hidden History takes you on fascinating journeys through the historic city of York, exploring its ancient, natural, and scientific history. Led by expert guides, Dr Simon Rogerson and Dr Liam Herringshaw, our walks are perfect for people who want a city tour that digs a little deeper.
For the summer of 2021, York's Hidden History follows a theme of Elemental York. We are offering four different walks: the York Air Walk, the York Fire Walk, the York Earth Walk, and the York Water Walk. Each takes place within the city walls and lasts around 2 hours. The walks are aimed at adults and children over 11, but children under the age of 11 are very welcome to come along too (and don’t have to pay!).
York's Hidden History is part of Hidden Horizons, which is based at The Fossil Shop in Scarborough.
