FREE FUN IN YORK... aka The Fabulous York Cat Trail provides both visitors and locals with the opportunity to find and photo the numerous statues of cats which are on York's old buildings. These were put there to frighten away rats and mice. The...more
My wife picked up a leaflet for the cat walk from our hotel, and I immediately rolled my eyes. I could see how today was going to pan out: I would be dragged around York looking for some stupid statues and having a thoroughly miserable...More

Thank you for the kind comment. As one of the people who put the original tour together over ten years ago, it's really lovely to see that the tour and Cats in York website lives on after having to move away from York and that it continues to give people such joy.
