The local small towns of Richmond, Northallerton and Darlington all have their own indoor and outdoor markets. The famous Catterick Sunday Market, at Catterick Racecourse, is right on our doorstep.
Whilst shops in the local towns sell everything to meet our day to day needs sometimes we all feel like going somewhere different. We are very fortunate that within an hour or so we can be in Durham, Gateshead or Newcastle to the north or Harrogate, Leeds, or York to the south.
