Owner description: Shambles (or The Shambles as it is often referred to) is a street in the city centre of York with a long and interesting past. Dating Back to Medieval times it was once the street of the Butcher Shops. Today the Shambles is Europe's most visited street, attracting tourist, shoppers and business clients.

Fun street for a local feel. Great shops and food. Check out the chocolate shops and gift shops. Historic.

Calling all Harry Potter fans.....a few shops selling Harry Potter paraphernalia. Has one of the famous cats there and happened upon a fabulous group of Morris dancers who made my visit to York worthwhile.....they’ve been on my bucket list for a loooong time.

Warning to USA travelers don't use Q Park. We couldn't pay with MasterCard. The pay machine was asking for a pin. It was not a debit card and when we pushed button for assistance were told for US credit cards we must use a pin. Getting cash which was the only way we could pay was a big hassle. It is false advertising to say they take MasterCard. This was at Q Park at the shambles.

Loved walking around the narrow streets and knowing they had been there for hundreds of years.
Interesting to see how the roofs almost touch In places
