A special event to raise money for next year’s York Walls Festival, ‘Twilight Walls’ gives access after dusk to York’s famous Bar Walls on the stretch of Walls from Bootham Bar gateway to Monk Bar gateway, which passes behind York Minster, on the line of the walls of the original Roman fort of Eboracum.

The Walls close at dusk and are rarely open in the evening, offering the unique chance to experience the Walls and the views from this vantage point in the dark.

There are three special sessions of ‘Twilight Walls’ to choose from! All tickets are £8.

On the Wednesday and Thursday at 19:00 professional guide Ian Tempest leads the group and will give a short talk about the Walls halfway around the Walls section, at Robin Hood’s Tower.

On all three dates at 19:00 The North Yorkshire Bat Group are leading ‘bat-detection’ experiences.

On all three dates you can experience the stretch of the Walls after-dark without a guide (supervised by volunteer stewards), allowing you to enjoy the sights, ambience and take photographs etc.

Use the links above or search ‘Twilight Walls’ or ‘York Walls Festival’ on Eventbrite. There is a different ticket page for each type of session.

Proceeds from the event will go towards the volunteer-run York Walls Festival which organises free and nearly-free, family-friendly events and activities that promote the history and heritage of York, and partner with community, volunteer groups and creative individuals in and around York.

This event has been made possible with the kind assistance of City of York Council, The Friends of York Walls and The North Yorkshire Bat Group.
