York Shambles is a short walk away from the Q-Park Shambles car park
One of York’s most popular tourist destinations, The Shambles is a narrow cobbled street lined with beautifully preserved Elizabethan buildings. Although today you’ll find a mixture of shops and eateries, The Shambles was for centuries a street of butchers – and the main place where local people came to buy their meat. It is from this long history of sinew, bone and gristle that The Shambles gets its distinctive name.
