My husband and I went on a lovely walk with friends along the city walls this afternoon before stopping for a spot of lunch at a nearby pub. It was very chilly, but the views more than made up for that!

Itstru that no visit to York is complete without a stroll along part of the 2 miles of historic walls that have protected the city for nearly 2000 years. Amazed to see that the walls are still intact after such a long time. Great city to visit in the north.

It is truly amazing that the walls are as intact as they are considering their age. Unfortunately we found no wheelchair accessible sections to walk along , only look at them from a distance

No other buildings in York city centre are very tall and so there are fantastic views of York Minster from virtually the whole elevated walk.... often from across ancient rooftops. Extending both side of the river, the city walls are not quite complete, but almost. There are several places where one has to descend to ground level. At each of these the next rejoining spot is clearly signposted. Very thoroughly recommended but obviously not suitable for those with mobility issues.
