The Shambles, York

The Shambles, York

The Shambles is definitely among the most popular attractions York can offer. It's a street right in the centre of the city with a long and interesting past, which dates back to the Medieval era. Once it was full of butchers' shops, but these days it's one of Europe's most popular streets, visited by tourists, shoppers and business people alike.

There are many timber-framed buildings overhanging the street, with some of them dating from the 14th century. The street was originally known as The Great Flesh Shambles and as recently as the 19th century it had 25 butchers' shops. The butchers have gone but some of the shops still have meat hooks hanging from their exteriors, with the old display shelves for the meat below them.

These days the street offers you great shopping and eating with lots of cafés, restaurants and souvenir outlets. Five smaller historic streets called Snickelways lead off The Shambles and they are also well worth exploring. York Minster and the National Railway Museum are close by.
