Co będziecie robić

Back for its third year - the most festive event of the year!

We will take a magical Christmas tour through the historic streets of central York, voted the UK's most Festive City. Along the route I will take you on a unique journey through the history of Christmas in the city, helping you to understand how the traditions of Christmas evolved through history.

We will use beautiful locations in the ancient city as our backdrop, to tell the story of how an ancient mid winter festival developed into the Christmas we enjoy today. Bringing to life stories of how the Romans, Vikings, Victorians and others introduced their customs into our celebrations and we find the source and meaning of our traditions that make up Christmas and New Year.

The tour lasts 90 minutes through the street and alleyways of historic York and we finish our tour around the Christmas Tree in St Helen's Square. A truly unique Christmas experience in the UK's best-loved city.

We will all follow the Government guidance on social distancing to keep everyone safe.
Other things to note
Dress suitability for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. The walk is on flat solid ground but will involve standing

Great way to see York. Not a tour with local history but the content on the history of “British” Christmas was very interesting to adults and kids

This was a very enjoyable and insightful experience. John was especially friendly, a talented storyteller and was an overall very nice tour guide. The tour itself was informative and engaging. I would recommend this to any York visitors.

As soon as we got there, John made an effort to find out a bit about us and made a point of engaging with everyone at some stage during the experience. That quickly brings a sense of friendship to the tour. John has clearly researched the subject and put the experience together in a clear, logical, humorous and entertaining way. He is an excellent story teller. Needless to say the environment of York at Christmas is the icing on the cake, but John’s stories really added a whole new perspective. Obviously this is limited to Christmas time, but not to be missed for the wintertime visitor.
