York Christmas Walking Tour

18th November - 24th December

£12

The medieval streets of York have echoed with the memories of Winter festivals for nearly 2000 years: saturnalia, solstice, yuletide… CHRISTMAS! – all have taken place within these city walls.

Immerse yourself in the spirit of Christmas as we weave through the cheerily lit streets. Let’s decide if York really England’s Most Christmas-y City? Is it true that it held the first ever Christmas celebrations exactly 1,500 years ago in 521 AD? We’ll discover where Rudolph got his red nose from, which ‘grinch’ tried to cancel Christmas, and see where a famous author read his stories in York – and made us a present of Boxing Day.

90 minute tours run at 4pm every day from 18th November to 24th December; booking is advised.

Meet at the Statue of Constantine, Minster Yard, York.
