Great shop
Feb 2020
This shop has a variety of models to suit a number of interests. There is always something to tempt you to buy to add to your collection. Even just looking around is enjoyable. Well worth a visit.

A good 'all round' model shop
Jun 2019
This shop is well stocked with a good range of models and accessories. My interest is N Gauge railways and there is plenty of stock of all gauges.

My idea of heaven, deffinately could live in here
Oct 2019
My yearly visit to York always see me make a visit to MB model shop, not just to buy but to gain infornation from the very knowledgable members of staff.
The selection of models, paints, adhesives, etc is superb, prices very reasonable,
I do like the idea of being left alone to browse yet staff are there if needed, an Aladins cave if ever.
Thank you.

Amazing selection of stock, and friendly knowledgeable staff
Sep 2019
Your shop was a joy to visit, sincerely.
We were the weirdos who came in on Saturday afternoon, 14th September. My partner (part bass-player, part wizard) eventually bought a kit after much discussion about, well, everything really. I just sat on your chair and rabbited on about my model villages whilst trying to steal another customer's beautiful dog. To be fair, the dog *did* want to come and live with me, so it wouldn't really have been stealing.
But yes, you have an amazing selection of stock, and great product knowledge. It may be a while before we're able to visit again, as we don't get to York very often, but we will definitely recommend your shop and your website to anyone and everyone who'll listen! Thank you!

Excellent Shop!!
Mar 2018 • Couples
Tucked away near the city gate of the same name, Monkbar Models is the quintessential model railway shop stocking literally anything you can think of related to the hobby...
I was impressed by the staff, very happy to chat and with extensive experience and knowledge, and I came away with exactly what I wanted, a Class 91 and a DVT in East Coast livery at a very good price!

Oh, ignore the March 2018 date - in reviewing from a visit in September 2016 but TripAdvisor won't allow me to change or select a date from that year...

Aladdins Cave. Take your credit card if you dare!
Sep 2017 • Friends
For all men who are boys at heart. Look there's the 'X' that I made when I was 10. A veritable treasure trove of model railway stuff, airfix models, paints and accessories, jigsaws and many more items. Took two friends who came to stay with me for the weekend and couldn't get them out!

You will buy something - be sure of that. Well worth an hour or two's browsing.

Superb selection of Models
Apr 2017 • Couples
Apart from the Railway Museum, one of my most wanted too see places in York was the Monkbar Model shop. It looked good on its website but in reality it was even better. I managed to get a Hornby Engine that is not easy to find and a couple of Chocolate and Cream coaches, which in real life, my grandfather had helped to build in Swindon Carriage and Wagon shop. Well worth a visit

Wonderful model shop tucked into the city walls
Apr 2017
This model shop has a great selection of diecast cars, models, trains and slotcars. The staff are friendly and helpful. Thankfully, I went in on a budget, as I could have bought much more!

PARADISE!
Apr 2017
If you like models then this is THE place for you ! A huge range of stock considering the size of the place, hidden away at the side of the Monk Bar Gate itself. I could have spent a fortune in this shop; friendly staff too; well done.
