One of the few cities where you can walk most of the way around the city without too many steps. Good views of the river and the walk takes you under the famous Eastgate clock

If these walls could talk I'm sure they could tell some tales of the things they've seen over the centuries! Very pleasant to walk round, getting an elevated view of the city in some parts, as well as being a good way to get around...More

Can't beat a walk round the walls to get rid of the night before. It is a very pleasant walk and you do get great views around the city. Well worth taking the time to explore.

Found the wall easy to follow with useful information along the way. Last bit being repaired but didn't spoil the overall experience.

Sorry for the delay in replying. The wall is free and open at all times. No guided tour but plaques explaining local sights and information at various points along the wall. The castle keep is free to to look around.

Loads of car parks in the centre, Grosvenor Hotel car park entrance - 1 mins to walls. Law Courts / river area car parks - 1 mins to wall. Race course / Market area car parks (lots of them) - 1 mins to walks - hope this helps
