Gatehouse Coffee is well known for having, what many consider to be, the best coffee in York – but what really makes it stand out is its magical location. Amazingly, the coffee shop itself is built into the actual medieval city walls of York! Enjoy a delicious barista coffee as you stroll along the 15th-century barbican of the gate to the city – quite literally drink in all the history!

Where can I find Gatehouse Coffee?

Gatehouse Coffee can be found south-easterly from York's centre, situated in the iconic city walls!

You can also take your drinks and delicious homemade snacks up to the rooftop terrace which has unbelievable views towards the Minster (though there are seats inside if the weather isn’t cooperating)! It’s the perfect place to take in the captivating ancient history of York while enjoying a hearty lunch.
