    The Shambles Info

    The Shambles is an old street in the city of York in North Yorkshire.

    The street has over-hanging timber-framed buildings, some of which date back to the 14th century. Once known as The Great Flesh Shambles, it referred to the shelves where butchers used to display their meat. Right up to the late 19th century there were 25 butchers’ shops in The Shambles.

    The Shambles today is a mixture of cafes and gift shops, alongside a bookshop and a bakery. Some still display meat hooks outside as a homage to the street’s history.
