Name That York Street !!!

Wip _Ma_Whop_Ma-Gate


Its all in the name !!! Have you an unusual Street name in your area? Did you know that this Street in York is one of the smallest streets in York if not the smallest. It derives from a phrase ‘Whitourwhatnourgate’ meaning ‘What a Street.’

But we have many other Streets in York including The Shambles Stonegate High and Low Petergate Goodramgate Gillygate Fossgate  Walmgate Micklegate and Coppergate. What’s great about these streets is that they are home to some great shops and places to eat. Its true that to fully appreciate York you need to spend more than a day here we have so much to do here you will love it you will be back lol !!!!! So here at our B&B we would love to hear from you.





Feeling Festive ?
