The Shambles (official name Shambles) is an old street in York, England, with overhanging timber-framed buildings, some dating back as far as the fourteenth century. It was once known as The Great Flesh Shambles, probably from the Anglo-Saxon Fleshammels (literally ‘flesh-shelves’), the word for the shelves that butchers used to display their meat. As recently as 1872 there were twenty-five butchers’ shops in the street but now there are none. There is still a butcher in the adjacent Little Shambles which leads to York’s open-air Newgate Market.

The shops currently comprise a mixture of eateries and souvenir shops, but there is also a bookshop and a baker.
