Welcome to Market Weighton

Nestled in the heart of the East Riding of Yorkshire, Market Weighton is a quaint, rural town with a couple of unusual claims to fame. It was once the home of Britain's largest sheep market, and is also the birthplace of William Bradley, the UK's tallest recorded man. With its traditional farmer's market and picturesque red-roofed homes, Market Weighton is a beautiful, tucked-away gem of the Wolds.

Visit Beverley

A short drive from Market Weighton, Beverley is one of Yorkshire's more affluent settlements, and one of the most beautiful market towns in the whole county. It boasts plenty of opportunities for up-market shopping, set along ancient, cobbled streets. Its historic Georgian Quarter is known for its unique architecture, home to a wide range of shops, and several listed buildings. The new leisure and retail centre, Flemingate, houses a number of high street brands and a six-screen cinema.

Unwind at Burnby Hall Gardens

Although Britain is full of formal gardens, Burnby Hall is certainly worth a visit when you're in the Wolds area. Winner of the prestigious Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award, its two stunning lakes are home to an impressive collection of over 100 species of hardwater lily, offering a changing, beautiful vista. The gardens host a range of events throughout the year, such as open-air theatre productions, brass band concerts and children's events.
