Welcome to Ripon
The city of Ripon is located in North Yorkshire on the River Ure. Ripon is a beautiful market town that was founded over 1300 years ago, and is famous as an old Cathedral City where monasteries have stood since the 7th Century.
The old city of Ripon is filled with shops, cafes, restaurants, and pubs, and also boasts many historical buildings and museums, including Ripon Cathedral, the Wakeman’s House, Studley Royal, Fountains Abbey and Ripon Spa Gardens where a Victorian bandstand is set.
A market is held every Thursday on the Ripon market square next to its 300 year old Obelisk, where the Hornblower will sound his horn at 9 o’clock every night.
Ripon is wonderfully located in the heart of the countryside, so there’s always plenty to do. Whether it’s a leisurely walk along the canal or through the Dales, a day at the museums or a night out on the tiles, Ripon has everything you could ever want right on its doorstep.
