Visit Wetherby - award winning floral market town

This Award Winning Floral Market Town has many treasures to explore including panoramic scenery and historic architecture.

Wetherby’s origins are as a staging post for travellers through the centuries between Edinburgh and London, and right next to the recently widened A1(M), it’s still an excellent place to spend a while if you’re travelling North or South.

Now it has developed into a busy market town, and still retains its Thursday Market, granted by Royal Charter in 1240.

For fans of the Sport of Kings (horse racing to the rest of us!) Wetherby also has a fine racecourse, famous for it’s National Hunt (jumps) racing, which also in recent years has added flat racing through the summer too.
