The town of Knaresborough

The town of Knaresborough has plenty to offer visitors, particularly on warm summer days.  It makes a good base to explore the Yorkshire Dales and cities of York and Leeds.

I can recommend a good hotel and also a very good B. & B. both in Knaresborough town centre, also several good pubs.  

Callers are welcome to my home by appointment.  

I have a small stock of books, prints and old postcards of Knaresborough for sale.
