About us

Unfortunately, due to essential maintenance work taking place at Micklegate Bar, the top floor of the Henry VII Experience will be inaccessible from Monday 12th June 2017.

Micklegate Bar, the iconic royal gateway of the City of York, invites you to discover The Henry VII Experience.

Explore the life of the first Tudor King as he created a new era in British History, after defeating his rival Richard III. Experience his early years as an exiled Lancastrian heir to the throne, who roamed the land gaining support and praise, eventually ruling the country! Discover his impact on the city of York, as it continued to prosper throughout his reign, with interactive experiences and displays dedicated to the life of the Tudor King.

For a more gruesome look at Henry’s past, step into our Tudor camp, where grisly facts about the Tudor times written by ‘Horrible Histories’ author Terry Deary await to be discovered. Learn the life of this iconic royal, in the very Gateway where his enemies’ heads were spiked.

Please note: Unfortunately, due to essential maintenance work taking place at Micklegate Bar, the top floor of the Henry VII Experience will be inaccessible from Monday 12th June 2017.

The remaining two floors, where you can explore stories of power and conflict in the reign of the first Tudor King of England are still open. Joint experience tickets for this and Richard III at Monk Bar will be discounted by 15% for the duration of this work, however the Medieval Pass and Pastport will remain at the standard rate. Please see the website for more information.
