“Get to know your York” Free Walking Tours Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September

An invitation to YPS members from the Lord Mayor and the York Civic Trust

Tours leave each day from 10am until 3pm meet in St Helen’s Square. The event is free but a donation to the Lord Mayor’s charities would be much appreciated. Booking for tours is not required but arrive early to make sure of your place.

The programme includes walks for people who have never done a walking tour of York before – a 45 minute introductory tour of York leaving St Helen’s Square every half hour on the half hour between 10.00am and 3.00pm……..as well as a wide choice of more specialised tours for history buffs led, in many cases, by very well-known experts in their fields.
