Event description


Led By: Dr M Faye Prior, Collections Facilitator (History), York Castle Museum

Join us for an early morning tour of the Debtors’ Prison before the museum opens. Spot the hidden features of the prison, and learn about what life was like for the people imprisoned here.

This event is part of: Castle Gateway: Stories of Change

29th July, Eye of York

We invite you to join us for a series of events – with something for all ages – to explore the Castle area of York it as it was, as it is now and to imagine it differently.

The City of York Council is currently working towards regenerating this part of the city centre - which includes Fossgate, Walmgate, Piccadilly, Foss Basin and Castle area and Eye of York – and has a collaboration engagement project called My Castle Gateway, to involve lots of different people in this process.

As part of this we are running a series of public event to open up the Castle Gateway area.

Through taking part – and sharing your knowledge about the histories of the site and ideas for the future – you will informing the development of a collaborative ‘statement of significance’ and a collaborative ‘brief’ on which the Council-appointed masterplanners will then work.
