Stonegate

Fodor's Review

This narrow, pedestrian-only street lined with Tudor and 18th-century storefronts retains considerable charm. It's been in daily use for almost 2,000 years, when it was first paved during Roman times. Today it's a vibrant shopping strip lined with upscale boutiques, jewelers, and quirky one-offs like the Eye of Newt at 35, your one-stop shop for "tarot, spells, candles, crystal balls, potions, and wands." A passage just off Stonegate, at 52A, leads to the remains of a

12th-century Norman stone house attached to a more recent structure. You can see the old Norman wall and window. Look out for the little red "printer's devil" at No. 33, a medieval symbol of a printer's premises. At the intersection of Stonegate and High Petergate, Minerva reclines on a stack of books, indicating they were once sold inside.
