About this event

Calling all families! This summer, let our costumed guide whisk you back more than 100 years to walk the streets of Victorian York as you explore what life was like for both rich and poor in our new family tour.

Step onto the cobbles and peer in the windows of the fine shops along Kirkgate, hearing why a Devil lurks outside the printers and how taking your "weasel" to the pawnbrokers was a weekly occurrence for many. Then head down the back alleys into York's slums to discover how hard and deadly life was for the majority of the city's residents as they battled against the awful conditions, where sharing a toilet with your whole street was the norm.

This socially distanced tour is for small groups to ensure your safety.

Children under five don’t need a ticket.

Please arrive 10 minutes before your tour time to be checked in.

Please note that due to the current government guidelines York Castle Museum is operating guided tours only at the moment, this means that your tour ticket does NOT admit you to the rest of the museum.

Please read our full visitor information including details on arriving and safety here
