Looking north-east on Coppergate

Coppergate is a street in the city centre of York, in England.


The site of the street lay outside the walls of Roman Eboracum, but was used for glass-making,[1] but it was re-occupied in the 9th-century, during the Jorvik period. Archaeological investigations have found remains of 11th-century houses which would have been on the street.[2][3] It was first recorded some time between 1120 and 1135, at which time it was known as a centre for coopers, from which its name derives.[3] Over time, the market in Pavement spread onto the street.[4]

The south-western end of the street was widened in 1900, leading to the replacement of most Mediaeval buildings.[3] From 1976, major Viking remains were found immediately south of the street, following the demolition of a cinema and confectionery factory. The site was then into the Coppergate Shopping Centre, opened in 1984.[2]

The street runs north-east from the junction of Castlegate, Nessgate, King Street and Clifford Street, to end at the junction of Pavement, Piccadilly, Parliament Street and High Ousegate.[3]

The back of the church of All Saints, Pavement, lies on the north side of the street, followed by a row of shops with their main entrances on High Ousegate. Numbers 3-7 was built in two stages in the 1900s, and late-20th century was occupied by Habitat. On the south side, Galtres Chambers and the 16th-century Three Tuns pub are both listed buildings, as are two structures with 15th-century origins: 26 Coppergate (the former Market Tavern), and 28, 30 and 32 Coppergate.[3][5]
