Discover The Shambles, York

Undoubtedly one of the UK's prettiest thoroughfares, The Shambles is believed to take its name from its past-life as a meat-market. Though those days have since given way to a variety of quaint boutiques and cafés (Betty's Tea Room is a perennial favourite with both visitors and locals), meat hooks and shelves still extrude from the timber-framed buildings, some of which date back to the fourteenth century. From the charming cobbled streets and monumental cathedral to the tourist hotspot of the York Dungeons, The Shambles is the route to the city's treasures.
