Take a stroll down one of Britain's most atmospheric streets, York Shambles. This narrow, cobblestoned pedestrian thoroughfare features numerous timber-framed buildings, with some dating back to the 14th century. Many years ago, the street primarily housed butcher shops. Today, you'll find charming shops, cafes, and restaurants. Stop at the House of Margaret Clitherow to learn the story of York's famous 16th-century Catholic martyr. Afterward, drink tea and eat scones in the oak-beamed Earl Grey Tea Rooms. If you have British heritage, head to the York Heraldic Centre to find your family's coat of arms. The street can be quite busy with tourists--morning visitors may have a quieter time.
