Ripon offers all the shops, cafés, restaurants and conveniences you'd expect from a city, including Booths Supermarket, Marks & Spencer Food Hall, and Morrisons Supermarket, whilst still retaining a unique character and charm.

Nidderdale, deservedly designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lies on the border of the National Park and is close to the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey.
