York offers a unique shopping experience. If you are looking for a special gift idea, want to spoil yourself or treat someone special, there is no better place for some retail therapy. With a web of winding streets flaunting designer stores, independent shops and boutiques, each distinct shopping area has its own speciality.

Parliament and Coney Street are home to the high street favourites, as is Coppergate – where archaeologists unearthed remains from the Viking city of Jorvik. Stonegate and Swinegate are home to a mix of stores hidden amongst medieval and Georgian architecture. For independent shops that are off the beaten track, wander along Gillygate and Petergate. Or explore the daily Shambles Market with more than 85 stalls offering a diverse selection of goods.

As well as benefiting from being beautiful, York also has a vibrant culture of chic cafes, festivals, galleries and theatres which any hen party will instantly fall in love with, as well as the stunning River Ouse perfect for boat trips and evening cruises during the summer months.

When night falls, take a stroll along the river and stop off for dinner – York has loads of great pubs and restaurants at its edge or head to the Swinegate area where restaurants serving every type of food await. Hit the pubs and bars in buzzing Micklegate as the hen night kicks off or if its classy bars you're looking for then head to Coney Street however, save some energy for the clubs because whether it's cheesy eighties sounds or deeply hip dubstep you're after, you'll find it here.

Do not miss The Shambles, Britain’s most picturesque street where medieval buildings lean inwards, almost kissing, over ancient narrow streets. And don’t miss the Coppergate Centre and Monks Cross for high street labels as well as designer one-offs. There are also some amazing delis and a vibrant café culture in York for when you need to plonk down the bags and revitalise. Treat yourself to hand-made chocolates and some of the best coffee in the city at the ornate Betty’s Tea Rooms. Take a stroll down to the River Ouse for dinner – there are loads of great pubs at its edge – or head to Back Swinegate, Low Petergate and Stonegate where restaurants serving every type of food jostle for your business. Hit the bars in buzzing Micklegate as the hen night kicks off but save some energy for the clubs. Whether it’s cheesy eighties sounds or deeply hip dubstep you’re after, you’ll find it here.
