Ripon

If the shopping areas of Harrogate are too busy for you and you want to experience a gentler pace of life head to the historic town of Ripon [map].

Ripon is akin to a miniature York and offers some excellent shopping venues around the recently refurbished Market Place which also provides short stay city centre parking spaces.

The retail environment consists of historic buildings, some of which date back more than 200 years, and thus create a quaint “olde worlde” atmosphere.

You could venture around the cobbled streets of Ripon and see how many bargains and unusual gifts you can pick up.

The Old Market Place itself offers very traditional services including chip shops, several very good pubs and post offices and banks. There’s also several butchers and other food stores where you’ll find all the ingredients for a tasty meal if you’re self-catering back in Harrogate.

Fishergate is more of a student area and offers a vibrant mix of bookshops, shoe shops and clothes shops. You’ll also be able to pick up a bargain at Oxfam or Scope as well as the other charity shops in the area.

North Street is one of the busiest streets in Ripon. Home to Monty’s nightclub but during the day it’s a busy shopping avenue appealing to the fairer sex. Offering nail extensions, hair salons, beauty treatments, chiropodists, health shops, this is the street to feel rejuvenated.

Kirkgate is a beautiful cobbled street offering some fantastically authentic shops, as well as the main restaurant area. Take a break from your hectic day and pop into Cibo or Mario’s Restaurant 27 for a quick caffeine hit.

If you want to do all of your shopping under one roof head to the modern comforts of the Moss Arcade. Here you’ll find music shops and popular clothing brands, as well as the handily placed library next door.
