Welcome to Indie York

Putting York’s independent businesses on the map

York is a hotbed for a huge variety of independent businesses, and it’s these places that give the city its charm. The cobbled streets and historical sites here form a backdrop for all these establishments to be envied, and together make York a unique place to live, work and visit.

With this in mind, Indie York is bringing together all these independent companies into one guide. Every business, numbered in a red dot, is a star in its own right but we’ve gone even further to map out clusters of the city’s independent strongholds including Fossgate, Walmgate, The Minster Quarter, Micklegate, The Shambles and Shambles Market, and Gillygate to name but a few.

We hope Indie York will provide you with a great starting point to help you discover, and share, the huge range of extraordinary businesses from specialist shops and brilliant cafés, to intriguing galleries and top restaurants in York.
