I stopped here after reading other reviews. Many items reasonable prices compared to the states. I found 2 items under 25.00. Would go back if lived close. Disappointed there were no antique shops available in Edinburgh.

Love to browse here when in York. Staff only too pleased to show you anything out of the cabinets. Memories come flooding back of things from days gone by.

Lovely shop and very friendly lady assistant ! Some amazing pieces in the jewellery section, which is what I was interested in. My husband's interest was the First Day covers of Golfing events. Well worth a look !

I cannot begin to tell you what a waste of our good time it was to visit this centre. The staff just could not be bothered and their attitude was a disgrace. The items were overpriced and most of the items are new. This has to be the worst so called antiques centre.

The Antique Centre in Stonegate looks like a small shop from the outside but when we went in it was like a treasure trove. It was full of cabinets packed with jewellery, coins, paintings and brooches. Even though we are not really into antiques we had a lovely time browsing and there was so much to see. The staff were...

A " must visit " venue for those who are even faintly interested in antiques and all manner of things that may be considered ( or not ) collectible. All manner of items are set out over 3 floors ( or is it 4 including the basement ) in cabinets or open display. There is so much to see and... More

I bought something at this 'antiques centre' whilst on a weekend away. I felt very rushed by the person working there, who stood over me the whole time, watching me like a hawk, as though he suspected me of being a thief. I decided to buy it, but unfortunately on inspecting it when I got home, I found it to... More

Situated on central Stonegate (and quite easy to miss), this antiques centre is always worth visiting. There's a very varied range of antiques and vintage collectibles in cabinets on two floors. Since York is a primary tourist destination, prices tend to be on the high side, but bargains can still be found here. Very professional and pleasant staff, and there's... More

This is a great place to spend time in. Loads of full cabinets to see especially silverware. We were in here about half an hour, and there was an item i would've liked so i asked to handle it.
