The City Walls Experience

Please note that due to the historic nature of the building, there are steep and narrow wooden staircases inside Micklegate Bar.

The walking tour is not included within the York Pass.

City Walls Experience at Micklegate Bar is the perfect introduction to the city’s historic city walls – the most complete walls of any city in the country.

York’s city walls have stood since Roman times, with the original ramparts and timber palisades replaced by stone walls in the third century AD. Visit Micklegate Bar – one of the historic gateways into the city – to discover their 2,000-year stories involving battles, imprisonment and near destruction.
