This narrow avenue in the centre of York is one of the UK's most famous streets. The overhanging architecture and medieval buildings dating back as far as the 14th century have drawn visitors for many years. The street was originally filled with butchers homes and their shops with a slaughterhouse around the back, though nowadays jewellery stores, fudge makers and chocolate shops adorn the tiny buildings. The remarkable similarity of The Shambles with Harry Potter's Diagon Alley has led to an increased amount of Potter fans visiting to see the 'inspiration' for the popular shopping street in the films, therefore, a number of wizarding stores have opened on the street too.
