"Whip-ma-Whop-ma-Gate" Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate Tip by Sjalen

Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate, York: 9 reviews and 14 photos


"Oh what a long street" is supposedly the name of York's shortest street near the end of the Shambles. No, there's nothing to see here apart from people waiting for buses and minding their business, but the street name is just so unusual, it has become a sight in itself. A bit like people going to Llanfair P.G. in Wales for the sake of a name.

Address: Whip-ma-Whop-ma-Gate
Directions: At the end of Colliergate, near the start of Walmgate.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
