Saturday Morning Shopping

Fossgate leads from Pavement down to the River Foss. During mediaeval times the sea-fish market was held on Foss Bridge (which is coincidentally just before the Loch Fyne Seafood Restaurant in the photo) and the lower part of Fossgate was known as the Fish Shambles. Nowadays it has an eclectic mix of pubs, restaurants, quirky shops and an entrance to the Merchant Adventurers' Hall some of whose signs you can see above.


  1. Looks a lovely and lively street. Think I'd be tying to do my shopping at a quieter time of the week!

  2. That is my kind of street! Love it, love all the action.
