About York

Situated at the confluence of the Ouse and Foss rivers is the cathedral city of York. York is located in the county of North Yorkshire and is a major transport hub, due in part to its position midway between London and Edinburgh. York is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the north of England as it features many well-preserved medieval buildings and landmarks.

York was built in the 1st century by the Romans, who named the city Eboracum. Over the centuries, York was attacked and seized by several different civilizations, including the Vikings and Normans. Each culture left a mark on York, which can be seen to this day. 

Modern-day York is one of England's most attractive cities, with an array of beautifully designed, ancient buildings and monuments for visitors to admire.

Fun Fact: York's famous high street, The Shambles, is believed to be the oldest shopping street in Europe, dating back to the 11th century.

Must visit attractions in York

The Shambles

The Shambles is York's iconic shopping high street and one of the city's best historic attractions. The Shambles is thought to be the oldest shopping street in Europe, dating back to medieval times. While none of the many butcher shops which once lined the Shambles have survived, some of the buildings still feature wooden outcrops, which would've been used to keep hanging meat out of the sun hundreds of years ago. You can take a stroll through the winding alleys for free and explore the shops that now occupy the historic architecture.

In recent times, the Shambles has become a hotspot for Harry Potter fans, as it serves as the inspiration for Diagon Alley. As a result, several Harry Potter-themed stores have popped along the Shambles, making it an ideal day out with kids. You can mix potions at The Potions Cauldron or pick up everything you need for your next term at Hogwarts at The Shop That Must Not Be Named. To avoid carrying heavy bags around this cramped street, drop them off at one of our convenient luggage storage locations before visiting.
