UPDATE – Easter and May 2015
The Postern Tower will also be open on bank holidays and other occasions throughout the year, including school ½ term holidays, and during the Festival of Ideas when curators from the Yorkshire Museum will be at the tower showing visitors special artefacts found in the Fishergate area.
Over 500 people visited during the recent York Residents Festival, with many local people saying they had always wanted to see inside the tower and enjoyed climbing its spiral staircase to see the rooms and roof space. The Friends of York Walls have recently installed some temporary lighting in the rooms and stairs, which were previously only illuminated by torchlight.
Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer guide should come along on an open day, or look on the Friends of York Walls website, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
