To describe Knaresborough purely as a Yorkshire market town is to do it an injustice.

It does have a weekly market on its cobbled square and a host of small independent shops tucked away along narrow streets which make a visit to the town centre a small voyage of discovery. There are even larger chains based on the St James Retail Park on the southern edge of town too.

But Knaresborough’s character isn’t defined by shopping. Its history and topography are what make it a desirable and intriguing place to live.

The famous railway viaduct over the deep gorge through which the River Nidd flows, the ruined castle originally built as a hunting lodge by King John when nearby Harrogate – affluent by today’s standards – was no more than a bog, the legend of Old Mother Shipton, a witch who could foretell the future, the birthplace of Gunpowder Plotter Guy Fawkes, the Petrifying Well which, over time, still turns objects to stone… These are just some of the things which make Knaresborough unique.

It has its industry too. A number of hi-tech IT and engineering firms are based in the town, high-quality car showrooms have relocated from smaller sites around the area to the relatively new retail park while tourism is also important, with caravan parks and holiday accommodation serving summer visitors who use the town as a base to explore nearby York and the Yorkshire Dales.

The town benefits from rail links with York and Leeds – putting London within a three-hour journey – while Leeds Bradford Airport is no more than 30 minutes away by car. Properties available range from listed cottages close to the town centre, quaint period terraced homes while modern residential developments on the outskirts of town offer anything from modest two-bedroom accommodation to expansive, five-bedroom properties with large gardens, some even extending down to the banks of the Nidd.

The town’s King James School was rated as “a good school with many outstanding features” by Ofsted in 2011 and every year acts as the assembly point for the competitors taking part in the annual KnaresboroughBed Race – a huge event which attracts thousands to the town in early June.

Yes. Knaresborough is a Yorkshire market town. But it’s also so much more than that…
