Leyburn in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, is a traditional North Country market town bubbling with character and captivating charm. The traditional open-air market is held on Fridays. Leyburn is home to some fascinating independent shops including the Tea Pottery, Chocolatier and Craft workshops. The town has Tennants, one of the largest auction rooms in England on the local business park. Sale days are on Wednesdays or Saturdays, usually with viewing the day before.

Leyburn is a gateway to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. What more relaxing way to enjoy them than by heritage diesel train? It's all aboard at Leyburn station for a trip on the delightful Wensleydale Railway, a community run line where you'll probably see rabbits scuttling beside the track.

Legend has it that Mary Queen of Scots dropped her shawl whilst escaping from Bolton Castle nearby. The shawl gives its name to a limestone terrace near the town centre with panoramic views over Wensleydale.

A two-mile walk to Middleham takes you across a historic and unusual suspension bridge over the River Ure. A few miles in the opposite direction is where you can delight in one of Wensleydale's most beautiful sights at Aysgarth Falls where the river tumbles over wide limestone steps.
