Quaint shop's, I had never seen so many of them, I loved them, they brought back to mind the English television show with the two "Ronnies!"
I found some interesting ones too, like the animated shoe maker mending shoe's, I had to stop and watch, I bet children love it even more! There was an Icecream shop, and a delightful Cake shop, many gift and souvenir shop's, quite a few expenisive shop's, especially in the Shamble's.
I bought some souvenir's and enjoyed my talk with a "Yorkshire Man, ".....he had relative's in Australia!
York also has many modern shop's, but for me, coming from a modern country, the "quaint" shop's were the one's I loved!
I was surprised!
EVERY DAY THEY HOLD A MARKET IN YORK, and even on a cold and wet day, the Market was being held.
Early morning, and people were setting up in the rain, I really felt sorry for them!
I had a browse around, found stall's selling home-made craft's, quite a few with fresh fruit & vegetable's, and quite a few with clothing.
Not the best on a wet day, but still people were coming and browsing and buying.
When you are looking for somewhere to go and shop til you drop York is the place to do just that. There are hundreds of small shops in the town centre usually open until 6pm.
There are 3 main out of town shopping centres. Clifton Moor, Designer outlet and Monks Cross. All are worth a trip and they have buses from town to them frequently.
Ok nuff for now more later
You can tell by the tortured lines of the exterior that this street is either (a) very old or (b) built by a now-defunct building company. If you guessed (a), you'd be 100% correct; then again, you'd probably score well with (b) also.
Our Lady's Row is famous because it houses some of the oldest buildings in England still standing, possibly even the oldest. They date back to the early 1300's but these days house shops.
York has just about every type of shop, and more besides! Most of the top UK high street stores are here, along with a vast assortment of specialist shops, ranging from herbalists, cosmetics and candles to wedding gowns, wall stenciling and teddy bears.
Interesting shop that sells beers and spirits from around the world. Bar at the back of the shop filled with backpackers and hippies.
York has shops to suit all tastes. My kind of shops usually sell their wares in pint glasses. There are lots of them too.
