The Shambles
Popular Areas
A winding walk along York’s oldest street is like stepping back in time – parts are so narrow that you can touch both sides of the street with outstretched arms! Once a hub of butchers’ shops, today The Shambles is lined with boutiques, pubs and tea-rooms that attract tourists and locals alike. For the perfect photo opportunity, take a more peaceful meander before 8am.
