"Hudson's Shop" College Street Tip by Galahad

College Street, York: 9 reviews and 12 photos

  Railway King's Shop 18.1.05
by Galahad

Tucked away right in the corner of College Street and Goodramgate is the National Trust shop at 1 College Street. This was the first home for the future 19th Century Railway King, George Hudson. After achieving the ownership of much of the UK's railways on other people's money his financial empire crashed, rather like the 1990s dot com bubble, and a lot of people lost all their money.

Address: 1 College Street

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
