Take a guided walk around the byways of York City Centre, encounter a series of colourful characters from present day York, hear some of Shakespeare’s most loved verses.

There will be two walks each evening led by a guide around a carefully chosen route. Along the way your group will meet an array of different performers each with a story to share. The walks will last about an hour.

The walks are aimed at those aged 14+ but may be enjoyed by younger folk with the right support from their accompanying adult.
