Overview

See York’s most iconic sights at your own pace with this fascinating audio guide.
Stroll past the city’s most famous landmarks, including old Shambles and York Minster, as well as many of its hidden gems too.

You’ll begin your tour at the York Art Gallery and travel back in time through 2000 years of history as you walk around this marvellous city experiencing Roman, Viking, and medieval history. See all the great sights of the City, as well as some less expected ones. And as you go along, you’ll learn about the central role York has played in the history of England. From its humble beginnings as a riverside Roman settlement, to its turbulent takeover by the Vikings, and then on to its thriving medieval period of commerce.
