The Shambles

- Shambles Market

The Shambles is the most famous street in York. It is very short, but yet it claims itself the most visited street in Europe! The truth is probably, at least, that it might be one of the most visited streets in England. It is known for its beautiful historical timber-framed buildings, some dating back from the 14th century, today with mostly gift shops and eateries on the lower floors. It is one of the best preserved medieval streets in Europe. In 1872, 25 butcher shops were located on this small street (then called The Great Flesh Shambles), but none is left today. Parallel to the Shambles is the nice historical Shambles Market, where fresh food, candy, clothes, toys, posters, unique craft, souvernirs and much else are sold.
