Winter Solstice, Saturnalia, Yule, CHRISTMAS!! - The streets of York have been witness to ALL of them for nearly 2000 years. Explore the streets beneath the twinkling lights and discover the traditions and history of this Wonderful Winter City.

Put your Christmas Jumper on and join Blue Badge Tourist Guide, Sarah Cowling, for a safe, outdoors, socially distanced experience to capture the Spirit of Christmas. Come and celebrate a York Christmas in style with tales from the bacchanalian celebrations of Roman Britain to the Midwinter Ceremonies of the Vikings - all have left their mark on our festivities today

Is York really England's most Christmassy City? Is it true it held the very first Christmas celebrations on these shores exactly 1500 years ago in 521AD? Where did Rudolph get his Red Nose from? and should we really kiss under the mistletoe? Discover who was the grinch who tried to cancel Christmas and which author read his stories in York and made us a present of Boxing Day.

Come and get into the Spirit of things in Britain's original Christmas City and who knows? - we might even find some takeaway mulled wine!
