A witty whistle-stop tour of York’s foul but fascinating history – complete with deadly diseases, vicious Vikings and creepy criminals like Dick Turpin and Guy Fawkes! A frightful map lets you plot your path into the perilous past, meeting at the Minster, ambling through the blood-soaked Shambles and then climbing up to Micklegate – where so many traitors headed off. Perilous plagues, horrendous highwaymen and angry invaders. It’s where York gets seriously yucky!
