York Walking Festival

During the York Walking Festival (5th-13th September 2020) why not stroll in and around the city centre looking for clues in York's High Street Independents’ windows? 

Eagle-eyed participants will see single word clues in each of the windows of the 69 participating businesses.  Guess what the theme linking them is and you could win a £50 York Gift Card.  For example, if you see the words ‘goal’, ‘kick’, ‘pitch’ ‘whistle’ ‘penalty’ ‘corner’ ‘off side’ then the theme is ‘football’.  There are 7 clusters of businesses, which means you can guess 7 themes.  But you only need to guess one correctly to enter the prize draw.

See for how to enter the prize draw and other information about the York Walking Festival.

This is a jointly organised event (between Indie York and the iTravel Team) to encourage people to walk more in the city and to discover York's High Street Independents.

A great event for families and visitors of all ages to discover York's many Independent businesses and rediscover our beautiful City. Printed maps available from all businesses taking part in the treasure hunt, Visit York Information Office and available to download from the Indie York website.
