"Not so innocent street" York Local Custom Tip by Sjalen

York Local Customs: 40 reviews and 38 photos

Just off High Petergate is the little Grape Lane with handicraft shops and similar. Don't think this is a quaint old York name to do with historical wine drinking with Richard III. Nope, this is just an abbreviation of what was once called Grope a C**t Lane! Home of York's best known brothel...

Review Helpfulness: 2 out of 5 stars
