Exclusive Tours

Discover the City with a Bespoke Walking Tour

Winding through the many medieval streets clustered around the mighty gothic Minster, it is easy to imagine the many hundreds of people who have made this city their home. The Romans, the Vikings and the monastery dwelling monks who created the beautiful Abbey ruins.

Hotel Indigo York offers guests bespoke guided tours of the medieval city, and spectacular landscapes nearby, with its own in-house guide and Yorkshire specialist, Sarah Cowling.

Keen to share her passion for ‘God’s Own Country’, Sarah, a Yorkshire lass by birth and Blue Badge Guide, creates exclusive and bespoke city walking tours focusing on York’s historic roots, the splendour of York Minster or its famous chocolate story. Her tours bring to life the people, places and spaces that have made York the vibrant city it is today.

The entirely bespoke tours are available year-round and start from the hotel reception.

Two-hour and four-hour trips are available to discover the ‘off the beaten track’ side of York, starting from £100 per group (guests within a single hotel booking).

To book your bespoke tour whilst staying with us at Hotel Indigo York, please contact Sarah directly with your preferred date and time. To obtain the exclusive rate, please mention you are staying with us at Hotel Indigo York. Be sure to include any tour preferences at the time of booking and do let Sarah know how you heard about her walking tours too.

At one point Walmgate had 20 pubs on the street, today it is a cool mix of independent restaurants, bars and shops and continues to Fossgate – which boasts even more independent shops, delis, bars and restaurants. Walmgate Bar proudly stands at the end of the road. It is the only existing bar in York with a Barbican and forms part of the York City Walls walk.
