About York Christmas Walking Tours
Take a 90 minute Guided Walk through the christmassy medieval streets echoing with the history of Christmas' past. Legend says that England's first ever Christmas Festival took place here in 521AD. Prior to that, Roman Saturnalia and Viking Mid-WInter Celebrations filled dark December nights. Is there any wonder York has been voted the 'Most Festive' city?

We went on the tour on our first night in your with our two young children aged 5 and 6. All the the historic detail regarding York made for a perfect start to our long weekend and it was nice to do our own exploring having had the historical context. We weren't aware of the significance of York with respect to Christmas and the festive season and this was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. We all really enjoyed it and would recommend the tour to anyone visiting this beautiful city.

An enjoyable and professional tour, delivered by our very knowledgable guide Sarah! Managed to cover a lot of content without rushing, including plenty of less obvious facts about York which was a welcome surprise. Would highly recommend.

I went on the tour last night and had such a great time! It was so interesting to learn more about York and Sarah definitely got us into the christmas spirit!!! There were so many interesting facts and beautiful places that she showed us - a handful of wow moments. The hour and a half flew by, I will be looking into some more tours that she does throughout the year!!

I joined this walk with some friends. Although I’ve lived in York for more than 15 years I’d never done a guided city walk before. The tour is about both York and Christmas. I learned many new facts about the city I live in and also how many of our Christmas conditions are a blend of Roman, Viking and other traditions. Sarah is a great story teller. Be warned to wrap up warm for this tour

For an hour and a half Sarah managed to make us forget about covid-19 (whilst ensuring that we are socially distanced and safe!) and reminded us of the many joys of Christmas! This was a wonderfully-informative tour, where we got to admire the beautiful Christmas lights of York and learn about the Vikings’ connection with Christmas (intrigued?!:). Highly recommend!"
