Pickering images

Pickering is a thriving, historic market town on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and the Vale of Pickering. It is an ideal centre for exploring the locality. There is a Visitor Information Point located in Morlands (newsagents and post office) in the Market Place and further information can be found at http://welcometopickering.co.uk and  http://www.visitryedale.co.uk.   Pickering has been awarded fairtrade status.

Town Council

There are twelve  councillors who work together to promote the best interests of the community. The Council liaises with the other Ryedale town councils about common interests and with both Ryedale District Council and North Yorkshire County Council on strategic issues. The Council uses the quarterly newsletter, the Annual Report and notices on its notice boards to keep in touch with residents, and the Discussion Forum to find out about residents’ views. Its office is housed in the Memorial Hall, Pickering’s community hall.

Local interest

The range of activities and organisations in the town is an important reason for its thriving atmosphere. The website http://welcometopickering.co.uk  should be consulted. The Town Guide provides local information too. (This can be found elsewhere in this website: Home page/Council Documents/General.)  The main heritage attractions are the castle, the churches and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
