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.

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.
