Anne Lister, of Shibden Hall in Halifax, was a Landowner, Industrialist, Explorer and Mountain Climber, Diarist and sometimes described as the first modern day Lesbian.

The recent BBC TV Series, Gentleman Jack, brought Anne's story to a wider audience. Taking just a small portion of the several thousand pages of diaries she left behind, we were offered a peak into early 19th century life. Today, you can explore the streets of York and  immerse yourself further into her world and the city she regularly visited and loved.
