Romans in York

Choose an 11am or 2pm tour, then meet your guide at Stonegate in central York to begin. Since its settlement in 71 AD, York has seen brutal warfare, political upheaval and industrial breakthrough, and today remains widely considered among the UK’s finest cities.

Along the way, learn of powerful figures such as Emperor Constantine, Guy Fawkes, and Richard III who helped shape the city we see today.

Afterward, visit York Minster (own expense) — one of the largest cathedrals in northern Europe. Admire features including the Gothic nave and the 14th-century West Window, and marvel at the medieval stained glass you find. Select the upgraded tour option to include York Minster in your tour.

When your time in York Minster comes to an end, return to your departure point in central York to conclude your tour.

The price includes the Minster ticket btw, as opposed to another tour by the same operator that does not.

Amazing way to see the highlight of the city, and the guide knew her stuff.

Wish I could remember our guide's name. Darn. I loved that it was a private tour with just him and my group of 5. We could ask all the questions we wanted. He even gave us a few tips on where to go eat or where we could find a certain pub! I enjoyed this tour.
