Take to the skies on the York Air Walk, our aerial stroll through the city's ancient, natural and scientific history. Join our expert guides, Dr Simon Rogerson and Dr Liam Herringshaw, as they guide you around the city's mediaeval walls, taking in the sights and sounds (and smells!) that other walks miss. In Simon and Liam's company you'll meet a pioneering weather forecaster, a demon stargazer, and the local lad who gassed Queen Victoria. On the York Air Walk, the sky's the limit! We are also happy to offer the York Air Walk as a private tour.
