This Bonfire Night weekend, jump into the flames of York's explosive past with our brand-new, Fire-powered Family Tour of York!

Led by expert guides, Dr. Simon Rogerson and Dr. Liam Herringshaw, our Fire-powered Family Tour blazes a trail into York's hidden history, illuminating highlights that other tours miss.

In the shadow of York Minster, we’ll light the fuse with the tale of Guy Fawkes, revealing how a group of York schoolboys ended up fanning the flames of the Gunpowder Plot. This is not simply a Guy-dead tour, though, oh no! We’ll then set the Minster ablaze with the incendiary Martin brothers, chase volcanoes down Stonegate, and salute the French World War 2 hero who saved York from burning to the ground. And we’ll finish in hot water at the town’s Roman Baths.
