We liked this area a lot. It's very picturesque, so take many pictures We found a GREAT teahouse named proper tea right behind the wellington pub ( Tudor style building) Many people were sitting and eating lunch or just people watching. Recommend

If you're in York, a walk down the Shambles is a must. The buildings are centuries old and you feel like you stepped into a picture book. It's absolutely charming.

Filled with locals surrounded by bars and restaurants. Very busy all day long. It is a must see area.

This is a lovely place to be on a sunny day. The Wellington pub is a tourist attraction in itself. We had a lovely meal there one evening. An oasis in the middle of the city!
