Kirkgate & Railway Station

Kirkgate and the Railway Station are certainly worth exploring on your way down to Knaresborough's stunning Christmas Tree Festival at St John's Church.

From the Market Place, turn right down Kirkgate between Six Poor Folk bar and Appleton's butchers (if you can resist stopping for one of their delicious pies on your way past)! Stop off to view the hand crafted ceramics at Jamali Annay or high quality goods at Chris Holmes Antiques.
