O que você fará

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

I am a professional tour guide with a wealth of experience delivering fantastic experiences to my guests. I am a natural storyteller and unlike many tour guides, I only work in York so I am totally focused on developing great experiences here. I offer top-rated walking and Pedicab tours around the city and have been featured on BBC Television for my unique Instagrammable York History tour. I graduated with a degree in history from the University of York and in the years since I have continued to advance my knowledge about the city. I love sharing the history of my wonderful city and ensuring that visitors leave the city take a host of wonderful memories of their stay here

A must book!! John is a wonderful storyteller and full of knowledge. Our tour was sadly during a rather drizzly evening but the weather did detract from how great an evening it was!

Our party really enjoyed the tour which was no small achievement given the youngest was 10 and oldest was 53!!! Educational and fun & we would certainly book another tour with John on our return to York.

Really interesting and a look at Christmas I was only vaguely aware of and I'm very good at history so it was very obvious John had done his research and was good at putting it across to others.

This was a really well organized and enjoyable tour. Highly recommend, it really did give a great Christmas experience. Great experience in the most Christmassy town in England. Stunning. Tour guide really did a great personal job with the group.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with John. His knowledge and delivery of his Christmas stories was excellent and our family of five (all different ages) thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you John

Fantastically informative, fun and deeply interesting. John is a great narrator of the history of Christmas, all wrapped up with the spirit of the season and set around such beautiful spaces throughout the city of York. 10/10 would recommend!
