When visiting York, The Shambles are a must, with quaint narrow streets and little shops. Apparently, The Shambles takes its name from the word 'shamel' meaning stalls or benches on which meat was displayed. There are some nice tea-shops.

Im a big Harry Potter fan and walking the shambles was like walking onto the set of Harry Potter. The shops themselves are great and we easily killed a couple of hours. Loved it.

beautiful old part of the city. If you visit on a saturday plan your shopping for the morning as it is a lot quieter and then spend the afternoon in one of the tea rooms or cafes and watch the crowds as they battle to shop

A stroll through the Shambles takes the visitor back in time more suited to the Dickens era. The tiny timber clad shops are a real Aladdin's Cave experience
