Maintenance on the Walls – Updated 28/04/17

Unfortunately, due to essential maintenance work taking place at Micklegate Bar, the top floor of the Henry VII Experience will be inaccessible from Monday 12th June 2017.

The remaining two floors, where you can explore stories of power and conflict in the reign of the first Tudor King of England are still open. Joint experience tickets for this and Richard III at Monk Bar will be discounted by 15% for the duration of this work, however the Medieval Pass and Pastport will remain at the standard rate.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Please contact our reservation team on 01904 615505 for more information.
