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.

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 antiques centre is jammed packed with antiques, collectables and curiosities on multiple floors. The staff are helpful and yes a bargain was struck on a old French metronome. Left happy with my bargain.

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. The person grumbled about getting it out, and when i tried to barter she told me sharply there was no room... More

An absolute must if you are visiting York. Lots to see even if your not into collecting antiques this is the place to go. The jewellery is amazing and reasonable prices for quality goods. Well worth a visit. Staff were so friendly and very helpful. I bought a ring and some hearings and really pleased with my purchase.

I love this shop. Every time we visit York, we go there for a bit of 'shopping'. Do leave yourself at least an hour if you are serious about getting something, because you are talking over 10,000 items in all those glass cabinets. In the end I bought a sapphire ring for my wife.... Good price too. But some items... More

I could have stayed here longer just looking at all the jewellery on display. Not the cheapest place to buy antique jewellery but some really lovely pieces. It's not just jewellery on display lots of other lovely antiques too
