Amazing cakes, brownies and meringues at the "Tray Delicious" stall - would highly recommend a visit.

nice place for photos . a lot of traders and shops but everything is so overpriced that you cant buy anything at all . guys you are in one of the most busy streets of York. make the prices lower and you will have more customers in your shops.

This famous part of York is just as you’d expect steeped in history and beautiful. Loved visiting the market and the shops as well as being part of a tour we took.

Loved the place just a bit of history and nostalgia . Although it was raining this time this did not deter people from walking in the rain and I think that you can see something for everyone also the Harry Potter shops seemed to be very busy
