Museum
“An interesting small museum, which despite its size contains so many different exhibits. What makes it so special is the volunteers who are so friendly and full of enthusiasm. It covers virtually every aspect of life in the area and takes you back in time. Well worth visiting if you are in the area and very close to the NYMR station in Pickering.”

“Set in the attractive Moors-edge market town of Pickering; discover how this splendid 13th century castle was used throughout the centuries. This tourist attraction in the heart of the North York Moors National Park has been a royal hunting lodge, holiday home and a stud farm by a succession of medieval kings. ”
