Pickering

Pickering is a market town in North Yorkshire and thousands of people come and visit here from all over the world every year.

The town is full of lots of independent shops and hosts a market every Monday with all sorts if different items to be sold including, handcrafted gifts to local produce.

 

 

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is based here and it is restored to as it was years ago. The platform itself is like walking back in time, and I discovered a great shop who sells train magazines from the 1960s. The station is famous for their steam trains which people can take journeys to Whitby, Grosmont, Levisham and Newtondale.

Pickering Castle is a must-see attraction as well. It was built in the 13th century by William the Conqueror.

There is so much more in Pickering to explore and museums to visit. It is definitely a place I would recommend people to come and visit for themselves.
