Historic Walks in and around York


25 leisurely city & country rambles

The routes in Historic Walks in & around York are all short and manageable, ideal for all ages and abilities, with enough variety and interest to satisfy everyone. In short, this lovely book really is all you need to have a grand day out all year round.



York is one of the UK’s favourite cities. A beautiful historical centre that is a destination in its own right and a base for touring the surrounding region. This wonderful book is the perfect guide to city and countryside, containing 25 carefully chosen meanders. As well as York itself, there are – to name but a few – Harrogate, Beverley, Ripon, Castle Howard, the Leeds & Liverpool Canal, castles, abbeys and many picturesque villages, all just a short drive or bus ride away.

Whether you fancy grandeur of a stately home, or a riverside amble, there is something in this book for you. And while you enjoy the walk, stand to admire the views and relax in one of the many cafes en route, nuggets of historical information are provided to add interest and variety.

An experienced walker and author of numerous walking books, and a former history teacher, Brian is now retired and devoting his time to combing his twin loves of the outdoors and the heritage of Britain.
