Discover more about Henry VII

About us

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 English 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.

Both the Richard III and Henry VII Experiences are located in ancient Bars of York’s city walls. 

Access to these venues is extremely limited and due to the historic nature of the buildings and their location, there is no wheelchair access available.

The external and internal stairs within both attractions are steep and visitors with mobility needs may find them difficult to navigate. 

Please call 01904 615505 to discuss your access requirements.

There is more information on access available on our website.
