Owner description: York's largest Antiques Centre nestled in the historic and picturesque street of Stonegate, just a stones throw away from the Minster. With five showrooms spread over three floors and over 100 dealers from all over the country, we stock a hugely diverse range of antique and vintage items.

This is such a great place to go treasure hunting in England. Nice and clean, well-organized, decent prices, lovely staff, and lots of wonderful smalls for those of us with bulging suitcases. They even have enough staff to unlock cases for you, so one doesn't have to grow older waiting and waiting. They carefully and expertly wrap your newly purchased treasures too. If I lived in York, it would be very difficult for hubby to keep me out of this delightful place. It's an adventure! After you leave hop across the street to the House of Trembling Madness for a drink and or their yummy stew. Then walk the nearby Shambles. It all adds up to a most enjoyable FUN day.

While walking through here there’s just so many things to try to see, it’s worth taking a few visits if you can and having a coffee round the corner in between.
It does get you feeling that somewhere in there, somewhere there’s that one piece that someone’s forgotten about and you’ll be on the TV in no time… maybe it’s there, maybe it’s not… I’ll be back next time I’m in the UK to have another look!

Came to york for the day, after doing the museum and lunch etc we had an hour to kill. Stumbled upon this place and was very impressed. Wondered around purposely looking for a solid silver tea strainer. Finally found one and it wasn't too badly priced either. Staff very helpful and friendly. Will definitely come back with more time in hand!
