Your tour guide will greet you at The South African War Memorial. This is opposite the Dean Court Hotel on Duncombe Place and right by the entrance to York Minster. If on the Thursday tour, place arrive for a prompt start at 11.45. For our Sunday tour, please arrive for a prompt start at 11.30.
Please dress for the weather – layers are best and wear suitable footwear for a gentle stroll.
We will be walking around the city centre and will end on Castlegate. We walk a little less than a mile in total. It is all flat although some of the streets are cobbled. There are minimal stairs at all our tastings although some have restrooms which are accessed by stairs.
We do recommend having a very small breakfast – you want to save yourself for some delicious tastings!
