The Gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors
Listed in the Guardian as one of the best small towns for winter breaks Pickering is a charming market town packed with popular tourist destinations, independent shops and markets, and historic and natural attractions.
Sandwiched between the four major Yorkshire towns of Scarborough, Whitby, Helmsley and Malton the town is a brilliant base for a long or short break. Explore the historic city of York, visit the picturesque villages such as Goathland or Grosmont, take a trip to the coast or ride the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on a steam train.
Visit during October for the annual Wartime weekend.
