Shopping

You’ll find mooching around Ripon’s shopping streets lined with mediaeval and Georgian buildings a truly pleasurable experience. With a diverse range of stores from independent boutiques to High Street chains offering trendy fashions and traditional gifts, there’s something to suit every age and budget. The narrow, winding street known as Kirkgate has always been of great importance in the life and history of Ripon as it is the main thoroughfare between the commercial world of the Market Place and the Ecclesiastical world of the Cathedral.
