A guided walk with York's Hidden History, uncovering the ancient, natural and scientific secrets of the city.
About this event
Dear Visit York Member,
What did the Ice Age do for the Romans? Which handsome York lad gave Sherlock Holmes a lift? And who were the microscopic Lister sisters? Find all these answers and more on a Micklegate Meander with York’s Hidden History, as we uncover some of the secrets of York’s ‘Great Street’. Starting at the historic Micklegate Bar, we’ll stroll down to the River Ouse, watching out for alien beasts at Holy Trinity, unusually flavoured sorbets on Fetter’s Lane, and fossils in the cobbles at Queen’s Staith.
Meet – 6.30pm, City Walls Experience, Micklegate Bar
Walk – 7pm, Micklegate Bar to Queen’s Staith
Finish – 8.30pm, Forty-Five Vinyl Café, 29 Micklegate.
