Set in the rich farmland of Herriot Country, you would be forgiven for thinking Northallerton is the perfect place for a sedate country escape. But instead this thriving and bustling market town is full of life and is an ideal base for visitors to explore the nearby moors, historical cities and picturesque villages.
Northallerton has a rich and varied heritage with some beautiful buildings including the Church of All Saints which dates from 1120 and The Fleece Inn, one of the oldest pubs in the town, and played host to Charles Dickens in the mid 19th Century. Northallerton has a decent mix of eateries from pub grub to some lovely restaurants and traditional tea rooms, including the famous chain, Bettys.
