Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.
Our tour starts at the Castle Museum, where you'll hear about the dark history of Clifford's Tower. In complete contrast, we'll then guide you to the elegant Fairfax House, one of the finest Georgian mansions in England, and we'll talk about the amazing discovery made there earlier this year.
Next, it's off to the famous Jorvik Viking Centre, where you can see, hear, and even smell what ninth-century York was like.
You'll then be guided through the streets, including the Shambles, where we'll explain the gruesome origin of the name and the terrible fate of one of its residents, Margaret Clitherow.
After hearing about the great city walls and who would have entered which gate in medieval York, you'll arrive at the great Minster to learn about its history, its real name, and about the Roman nobleman who was crowned Emperor while he was staying just yards away from where you're standing.
