This is a quaint and quirky little street with some interesting little shops. Steeped in history and has the same feeling as walking Edinburgh's royal mile. Can be very busy but lovely for a stroll.

Went and wandered The Shambles a few times whilst in York and both my mother and I were charmed with the old buildings but we did expect a bit more from the shops themselves.

Worth a look if you've got some time in York.

Well worth a visit, very individual shops and they even do a ghost hunt every evening if that is what takes your fancy

A trip down this street brings th past to life, and the shops are so individual Gaze into the windows of these unique and interest shops and wander on the narrow pavements.
