There are several pubs and restaurants within Boroughbridge itself and the surrounding villages. These range from traditional country pubs to Indian restaurants. Open air markets are held every week in nearby Ripon, Thirsk and Knaresborough and for the sports enthusiast, there are also a range of golf and race courses in the near vicinity. The lovely spa town of Harrogate is also close by as is the historic city of York with its magnificent Minster where you can enjoy visiting the National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and York Dungeons. You can also sail along the River Ouse on the Yorkboat, where you can see the city from a different perspective or join one of the nightly ghost walks through the ancient streets recounting stories of York’s spooky past.
