Called in to York Spark while on a visit to York and was really impressed - great atmosphere with lots of choice to eat and drink. Looks better than their Web site as now has a roof. Will certainly return soon.

Visited twice, once on Friday evening where we had lovely food at the caterers who use donated surplus food then on the Saturday afternoon where we ate at the burritos caterers. Fab atmosphere on both occasions, reasonably priced. Would come again. Suitable for all ages.

Came here especially as a friend had recommended the place. It’s made from metal shipping containers and scaffolding. It houses various types of eateries and a few independent shops selling clothes and music. The food stalls looked and sounded lovely but seemed expensive (much like...More

We were recommended to stop by here whilst visiting York and it didn’t disappoint. Contemporary and modern, it really is like a New York! We stopped at Tikk’s Thai for dinner and it was amazing. 100% recommend and would go back!
