Perky Peacock, York

Perky Peacock
Quirky little cafe hidden under Lendal bridge, in a miniature tower.
A hidden gem in York. It would seem to offer such good coffee that people recommend it to their friends to visit if they are going to York for a visit. Lendal bridge area has a lot of food offers so as a coffee shop it does seem to stand out. We love the fact that it is so well hidden that finding it makes you feel as though you are part of the secret that is The Perky Peacock.

Profile Description

The building and location is fantastic. Very York. The Perky Peacock is hidden beneath Lendal Bridge, tucked up in the small, charming, 800-year-old Postern Tower. The Perky Peacock is hard to find if you’re not looking for it but has made an impression with the locals: plenty of customers seem to be from the nearby offices.

It’s very small but – as most of the trade seems to be take-away – there’s usually a free seat. A great place for relaxing and chatting, with sarnies and cakes to keep tums from rumbling.

Housed in a medieval stone tower on the banks on the river Ouse, the Perky Peacock on Lendal is like no other cafe in York. The round walls and ancient stone give an unparalleled atmosphere.

The slate topped tower forms part of the old city wall. It was built as a toll tower, restricting the access ships had to the town centre by the use of a long chain strung across to the tower opposite.

To find out more about the history of the tower and the wall it is part of, you can read the information panel at the top of the stairs opposite the cafe. These are part of a trail that runs the entire length of the city walls giving and excellent explanation of a great historic city.

There are tables and seats outside so that you can sit and enjoy the river and all the excitement of tourists going up and down the river on their cruise boats.

QWerkyness.com is not about the food and drinks but more about offering people unique locations to enjoy their food and drink. Perky Peacock offers you just that. Have fun…and enjoy the coffee (and yummy cakes too! Nom Nom) .
