  • OK .... sign explaining it all was present. Short walk from city centre. Best experienced when watching the corresponding horrible histories video.
  • A few minutes walk from the route of the town wall, located behind the Court buildings. The grave has a prominent headstone, but the grave itself is a patch of bare earth (everywhere else in the graveyard is grassed). There is a small tableu providing some history and background of Richard Turpin. Not much else to see unless you want to get some rubbings from the other grave stones.
  • Interesting place with an information board to explain it. In a nice area a short walk from the city centre.
  • Worth looking for, just to say you have seen it. Grave yard is a bit scruffy.
  • Interesting piece of history from England's past. Grave and bio on the infamous Highwayman.

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
