"The Shambles" Shambles Tip by sambarnett
Shambles, York: 50 reviews and 106 photos
From medieval times up to the early decades of the 20th century The Shambles was York's meat and butchering center. The benches (called 'shammels') and hooks used to display meat are still present.
Notice the two houses in the background of the picture. The street is so narrow that two people could reach out from the windows and shake each others hands. Imagine how crowded it can be here during the high tourist season.
Directions: The Shambles is situated within the city walls just off King´s Square.
