The walk ends at York Hall, one of Britain’s best known boxing venues. Opening originally as a Turkish bathhouse, York Hall’s neo-Georgian Grade II architecture, skylight arched windows and host of original features have cemented its reputation as an extraordinary venue not only for sporting events but for a variety of live music, fashion and comedy.
