Micklegate bookshop and café, York

Micklegate, which rises in a south-westerly direction from Bridge Street and the River Ouse to Micklegate Bar, used to be York's main street, its name deriving from the Old English mickle, meaning great.

The Blake Head Bookshop at 104 Micklegate has a large selection of books for all ages and the vegetarian café offers a good, varied menu. As you can see, there is free on-street parking!


  1. This book store has it all going on. I can't think of a single one here that offers beer and wine.

    Sad to say, I was serious about knowing about only black steam locomotives. Gauging by your reaction, I think I'm in for an education. Color me curious.

  2. Looks like an interesting place to explore.
