Delve into the enchanting and mysterious corners of York with this In-App Audio Tour, ideal for anyone with a curiosity for history and folklore. As you wander through cobbled streets and ancient structures, you'll uncover tales of the ordinary and the extraordinary that have shaped this city over the centuries. Start your journey at the Shambles, a street frozen in medieval times, and end at the Richard III Experience, housed within the formidable Monk Bar. The route takes you past the magnificent York Minster, through the enduring York City Walls, and by the significant ruins of St. Mary's Abbey, among other noteworthy sights. Along the way, you'll encounter the whispers of past lives at the Treasurer's House and imagine the clink of swords at Clifford's Tower. The most memorable experiences will include peering into the lives of medieval merchants at the Merchant Adventurers' Hall, sensing the silent footsteps of spectral Roman soldiers in shadowy cellars, and reveling in the grandeur of York's storied past. This self-led adventure invites you to see York through the eyes of those who left their marks on its storied stones.
