The Henry VII Experience is located inside Micklegate Bar on the York City Walls. To access our location, you must climb 25 stairs (stairwell width of 1090mm, handrail along the left hand side as you are walking up the stairs) or walk along the City Walls. Our doorway is a manual medieval door, but it is left open during opening hours except in cases of extreme cold (when it is closed but easily swings open). The door is 700mm wide. Due to the historic nature of the building, there are no ramps, no lifts, and a fair number of narrow stairs between floors. There are also no toilet facilities.
