Pickering

 

The small market town of Pickering lies just on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, in the district of Ryedale. It is perfectly placed for exploring the moors, the Yorkshire coast and the historical city of York which is located just one hour away.

The famous North York Moors railway has a station in Pickering which is definitely worth a visit, especially as it is just a short walk away from the town centre. As well as this, the Beck Isle Museum is located very close to the NYMR station and provides an opportunity to learn more about life in the rural countryside over the last two centuries. Eden Camp, a Second World War history museum is also on the Malton to Pickering road. This fascinating establishment was once a prisoner of war camp.

For those looking for more of an adrenaline rush, the high wire adventure at Dalby Forest will certainly set your pulses racing. Alternatively, Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo offers some of the scariest and most intense rollercoaster in Europe. This is just a short journey away in Malton. Also in Malton is the prestigious Castle Howard, reputed to be Yorkshire's finest country house and estate.

After all this sightseeing, you’ll need to stock up on provisions to regain your energy. Visit Pickering market every Monday or try the varied little shops dotted around the town centre. On top of this, Pickering has regular farmers’ markets for you to try the freshest fruit and vegetables around.

Accommodation is varied and plentiful with local hotels, bed and breakfasts, holiday cottages, holiday homes and touring caravan sites. All offer a friendly welcome and good value for money.
