The York - around the city walls Trail starts at:

The corner of Foss Bank and Jewbury

York

North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire

YO31 7PL

England

Foss Bank Car Park

We have three super duper themed Clubs for your child to enjoy as part of their Treasure Trail experience.

Perfect for 4-8 year olds, the concept behind the Clubs is that your child will get a bundle of goodies to excite them about their forthcoming Trail experience, something to keep them entertained whilst travelling to and from the Trail, and something to be given on completion of the Trail as a keepsake.

Before you set off on your awesome adventure, there are a few things you need to know...

The city walls are open from 8am until dusk every day except Christmas Day. 

The route isn’t friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs due to open sides, uneven paths and tricky steps.

Tracker dogs aren’t allowed on the city walls – unless they’re assistance dogs – so please don’t bring your four-legged friends along for this adventure.

The closest long stay pay and display car park to the Trail start point is at Foss Bank (YO31 7PL), just across the road from where your quest begins. Or why not try York’s Park and Ride service?

There are some fantastic events in York's calendar, all of which are great times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that some of the clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access on these occasions. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact York Tourist Information.

There are public toilets available just after Clue 06, and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. There are great picnic spots along the river and in the Museum Gardens if the weather is nice.

Looking for more things to do in York? Make a whole day of it and take a peek inside York Minster or pay a visit to the Jorvik Viking Centre for more of York's history. You could even extend your adventuring and have a go at one of our other York Trails (The Chocolate and Sweet Trail will make your mouth water)!
