Hi fellow Brits,

I am taking a trip to York soon and have heard rumours that there is quite a good 'proper' game shop (ie. not Games Workshop). Can anyone confirm this and let me know where it is? Google search is revealing indifference.

Cheers.

Jon will be able to tell you if there are any more:

Ben,

Andy is correct, Travelling Man on Goodramgate is your best bet, just round the corner from the Minster. If you can time your trip to the 1st or 3rd Saturdays of the month, you get to visit Beyond Monopoly! as well for free. We run from 10am to 6pm, you can come and go as you like, and enjoy our 250+ game collection.

Cheers,
jon.

Excellent! Thanks, gents. Just need to prevent my wife from hiding my credit card now.

Sadly, this trip will be on Monday only, but I might make future travel plans with Beyond Monopoly in mind.

Isn't Irregular Miniatures in York? That's where I'd go.

You could get lotsa miniatures there in many many scales or pick up a set of one of the Tusk games.

Well, that trip was definitely a success. Most of my last salary has been paid to Travelling Man, and I'm now the proud owner of a whole bunch of exciting new boxes.

Thanks again for the recommendations.

I know I am dragging this thread up from years ago but are things still the same? I have a trip up in a month or so and would like to play some games!

Travelling Man is still there and still great. There is also OG Games which is on the delightfully named Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate in the Shambles.
