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.

Nobody who goes to York should miss this fascinating ancient street of mediaeval shops, interesting even after dark and when the shops are closed.

Beautiful, historic buildings but not much else to it. To be honest, I was expecting it to be somehow 'more'......

The Shambles is always asked after, For every Guest who enjoys History I would recommend walking to the Shambles, or hiring a tour guide to make history come to Life!
There are many shops and Cafe's to experience.
