While visiting Shambles call into this Shrine it has a fascinating story Margaret Clitherow must have been one hell of a woman you can read all about her on a visit

A sad story for an amazing woman. the shrine is well worth a visit, and is in the centre of the shambles.

We were wondering in the Shambles when we stumbled on this little treasure - it is a place of tranquility and such a surprise to be nestled so unobtrusively where it is - and is easy to miss which sadly happened last time we visited York.

Visitors should be aware that the shrine is to the memory of St Margaret, but it is not her home, which was on the opposite side of the street. See the biography of Margaret by Katharine Longley for further details. The shrine is, nevertheless, a quiet place apart from the hustle and bustle of the Shambles. A plaque to mark where Margaret was pressed to death can be seen at the south east end of Ouse Bridge.
