  • I stumbled across this place while on holiday and was not disappointed. They cater for crazy cat people as well as their cats. Spent a small fortune in there and they have a cat-alogue no pun intended...  more »
  • I didn't even know this place existed until I stumbled across it on my recent trip to York. I saw the cat stuff in the window and couldn't believe my eyes! Cats, Cats, Everywhere!!! I quickly went in ...  more »
  • Fun shop with everything cats. From toys for kids to tea towels and crazy socks. A great unique shop to visit! My son found his favorite characters - Pusheen and Stormy.  more »

  • I didn't even know this place existed until I stumbled across it on my recent trip to York. I saw the cat stuff in the window and couldn't believe my eyes! Cat stuff everywhere!!! I quickly went in an nearly cried from the pure joy of knowing someone actually created a shop... full of stuff with cats all over it! Anything you can think of! I had to prevent myself from buying everything at the glaring eye of my husband... So I settled on a smaller purchase. But next time I'm in the area on my own, I'll definitely be back! Haha ;)
  • I have shopped on their online store and being cat crazy I love it! Why the poor star rating? I tried several times to leave an honest but bad review about some cat glasses I bought which were very poor quality with the cat face washing off instantly (hand washing) and they have not posted the feedback on their website, they must only publish positive reviews. To be honest the cat glasses should be withdrawn form sale!
  • Spent a great half day on the cat trail which finished at the Gallery. Gave us a really nice look around the centre but with the added bonus of a treasure hunt
  • This is a compact but fun cat themed gift shop with an interesting selection of gifts for cat lovers from stationery to soft toys, household goods and ornaments.
  • Lovely shop with everything cat related. spent a good half hour here adding to my wishlist!

Where to stay in York

Despite York’s relatively small size, accommodations come in a variety of styles. 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. Alternatively, the surrounding countryside is filled with charming private homes eager to welcome guests.
