A short easy walk through the parks and historic centre of York to discover the giant's Christmas cards scattered round the town. So unique and Insta-worthy, your friends will be amazed when they see your pictures! 

There's a glimpse of detail from each card here to give you a clue, but you'll need to visit to see the real thing. These cards are totally unique and are supersized reproductions of nineteenth century cards in the York Residency Museum collection.

A great family activity which includes two parks, families will especially enjoy Avon Park with its superb play and picnic facilities.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
