Set in the famous, picturesque Shambles in the center of York, this gallery is quite special. Not only does it have a wonderful display of prints and pottery for sale, but if you speak to the owner nicely, he will tell you the history of the gallery. He will point out the Priest Hole in the corner of the room and tell you about the days when it was a medieval butchers shop - all the original trappings are still hanging from the ceiling, and then perhaps he'll describe how Margaret Clitheroe was "pressed to death" in the cellar. So, if you visit the Shambles Gallery, you may go home with more than just a superb print or handmade pottery, you'll have visited a little piece of history as well.
