Event details

Friends of York Walls

Fishergate Postern Tower is not often open to the public.  It was built in 1505 and retains many original features and character.

The Friends of York Walls have teamed up with York Museums Trust to open the Tower both weekends during the Festival and display some key Anglian-period artefacts from the local area. 

On Saturday afternoon, visitors will be able to handle a unique ring not normally on public display.
