Station Road Wall Walk Access Steps

The steps were constructed in 1874, when the three adjacent arches were pierced through York's City Walls to provide access to the new railway station.

The landing at the top of the steps (see the bottom-left corner of Image 2) is a very popular spot for taking photographs (for an example, see York Minster and Lendal Bridge from the Wall Walk p01).

The two-star rating reflects the popularity of this landing for 'selfies'.

Practical Information

These steps are the closest Wall Walk access point to the railway station. However, great care is needed when crossing the very busy road at the foot of the steps.
