One of the best ways to explore York is on foot. A stroll down any snickelway, wall or ings opens you up to a whole world of discovery. This year, in conjunction with Welcome to Yorkshire’s #Walkshire campaign, we’re encouraging people to Love Walking in York.

Little Vikings have put together the I Spy Trail, a brand new, family friendly walking trail. The trail highlights 22 fascinating features of York, for you and your little ones to look out for as you walk around the city. The Visit York Chocolate Trail takes you on a journey across York to uncover how the city was built on chocolate, and highlights the sweeter side of York’s history. In our selfie trail, we’ve picked out some of York’s most photogenic spots, so you can take superb selfies, which are sure to rack up plenty of Instagram likes.

You can also find more ways to explore York on foot with some of the brilliant books on offer in the Visit York eShop.

You'll be able to join one of the many themed guided walking tours and ghost walks with local experts to take you on a journey of discovery.
