Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate is one of the smallest streets in York, England, if not the smallest. It is between Colliergate and Fossgate and intersects Pavement and the Stonebow in York city centre. It is currently a length of raised pavement between St Crux church hall and a small road junction.

First recorded in 1505 as Whitnourwhatnourgate, literally "Neither whit nor what street" (with archaic English gate, meaning street), the name could mean either "Nothing at all" or "Neither one thing nor the other";[1][2] though a plaque at the site gives the meaning "What a street!" In 17th and 18th century documents the alternative name Salvey Rents or Salvegate is also found.[1]
