  • Very quaint market place with lots of quality stalls. Many a bargain to be had here. Don't be afraid to good look through everything.
  • Love it. Love it. Love it. There's bits of alsorts here. Love the handmade soaps and smellies. Beautiful bags and a stall that sells really novel money boxes and incense burners. Find that gem! Right by the shambles it's self. Hats and scarves in abundance this time of the year. Worth a visit. Bag i bought below!
  • Such a beautiful little market tucked between the quaint back streets of York. Lots of good value vendors, butchers, grocers etc as well as a good retail selection including clothes, flowers and second hand books. A lovely spot in the bustle of the city with a relaxed seating area in between all the food vendors (great pancakes and burritos!)
  • Fantastic, real traditional place. People are lovely. Loads of little side streets to get lost in with great shops, tea rooms and little taverns for a proper pint of Yorkshire bitter.
  • Lots of qwerky little shops and eateries. I spent ages just browsing along with lots of other tourists. There was also a food festival going on. Lovely atmosphere and the weather was kind.

Where to stay in York

You can choose from privately owned townhouses, low-cost hotels, luxurious international chains, and quiet B&Bs and guesthouses. For that ultimate urban experience, consider staying in the historical city center. This part of town is packed with options for every taste and budget, all close to York’s main attractions, as well as its main transportation systems. Just a short walk from the city center, family-run guesthouses in quiet neighborhoods offer cozy rooms and modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
