Stonegate and the Shambles

The Shambles is York's oldest street and was mentioned in the Domesday Book, making it over 900 years old! The 15th century buildings lean into each other so that their roofs almost touch over the middle of the cobbled road. The Shambles is Europe's best preserved and most visited medieval street and has become a wealth of shopping, tourist attractions, restaurants and many other things to see and do including tours, ghost walks and historic talks.
