Situated on central Stonegate (and quite easy to miss), this antiques centre is always worth visiting. There's a very varied range of antiques and vintage collectibles in cabinets on two floors. Since York is a primary tourist destination, prices tend to be on the high side, but bargains can still be found here. Very professional and pleasant staff, and there's... More

This antiques centre is jammed packed with antiques, collectables and curiosities on multiple floors. The staff are helpful and yes a bargain was struck on a old French metronome. Left happy with my bargain.

This is a great place to spend time in. Loads of full cabinets to see especially silverware. We were in here about half an hour, and there was an item i would've liked so i asked to handle it. The person grumbled about getting it out, and when i tried to barter she told me sharply there was no room... More

An absolute must if you are visiting York. Lots to see even if your not into collecting antiques this is the place to go. The jewellery is amazing and reasonable prices for quality goods. Well worth a visit. Staff were so friendly and very helpful. I bought a ring and some hearings and really pleased with my purchase.

I love this shop. Every time we visit York, we go there for a bit of 'shopping'. Do leave yourself at least an hour if you are serious about getting something, because you are talking over 10,000 items in all those glass cabinets. In the end I bought a sapphire ring for my wife.... Good price too. But some items... More

I could have stayed here longer just looking at all the jewellery on display. Not the cheapest place to buy antique jewellery but some really lovely pieces. It's not just jewellery on display lots of other lovely antiques too

Four years ago my then partner and I stumbled across the shop and ended up buying a beautiful antique wedding ring for her even though we hadnt even agreed to get married at that stage. Four years on and married, we returned last week and the centre was still as interesting and friendly as we had initially found it and... More

Friendly service. Great tasting food at really good price. Gallons of tea and no problem when requesting more milk. Delicious cakes too.

I was amazed having visited this so called antiques centre at the huge amount of new items-hardly antiques. The few antiques there are are really overpriced. There was barely a member of staff to be seen and those there were were simply chatting to one another. What a rude bunch! I consider it to have been a wasted journey. Be... More

This place is fantastic. It is packed full of beautiful pieces. Excellent selection of beautiful jewellery, clothes, books etc and there's some excellent bargains for under £50. One could definitely spend an hour or two hour or an afternoon for antique lovers.
