York Photo Walks



Enjoy a guided walk with local landscape photographer, Mat Robinson; author of numerous guides to York and the surrounding areas and with years of experience in photographic tuition. We will visit a number of traditional views along with plenty of hidden vistas slightly off the beaten track.

Upcoming dates: Saturday 5th Aug, 7pm.
If a tour begins within an hour of sunset, a tripod is recommended as we'll be finishing well after dark. If you don't have a tripod, you're welcome to join us on an earlier tour or come along anyway - the views will still be beautiful.

We will visit many of the main attractions, including York Minster, a number of points along the city walls, Lendal Bridge, Skeldergate Bridge, the Art Gallery, the Museum Gardens, the Shambles, Clifford's Tower and more. Exact locations will depend on the weather and light, but you'll be guaranteed to be rewarded with some unexpected views. You'll also be supplied with a map of locations so that you can revisit all of the best ones at a later date.

Whilst this is primarily a walking tour, photographic and compositional input will always be available as I'm an experienced tutor with groups of all sizes. But don't be put off if you just want to join us with your phone and have no interest in photographic equipment at all. The views will be just as beautiful whether you own an expensive camera or not!

This photo-walk is accessible to all - children, pets and friends are all welcome and discounted. If your children don't have cameras themselves, then why not pop into Boots beforehand and get a cheap disposable one? It's never too early to get them engaged in seeing and understanding the beauty of the natural world and historic scenery.

Places will be limited to roughly 12 people per walk - so booking in advance is advised - although you're more than welcome to pay in cash at the start of the walk. The prices for the walks are as follows:
- £10 per adult
- £5 for under 16s
- £25 - family bookings (2 adults and 2 children)
- Group bookings are £10 for the first person and £6 for each additional guest.

It is strongly advised that after making a booking, you send me a message HERE including your name and phone number - so I can contact you if necessary beforehand. You can also use this to book onto a specific tour - just let me know the time and date you'd like to book onto.
