Kirkbymoorside is a treasure trove for art and antique-hunters: home to the one of Yorkshire’s quirkiest, friendliest art galleries, Bils & Rye, and also the fortnightly Ryedale Auctions, attracting collectors from across the world. Nearby is the open studio of international glass artists, Gillies Jones, and the town’s pride and joy is its award-winning 200 year-old Brass Band, a star at local events.

The town’s top attraction is Ryedale Folk Museum, with its historic ‘village’ of homes, gardens, workshops and stores – and even a witch’s hovel - providing a unique glimpse into our rural past from the Iron Age to the 1960s. There’s also a museum, animals, orchards, vintage vehicles, a lively programme of events, and nearby workshops including Greenwood Crafts, and the Chocolate Factory.

Kirbymoorside’s market square boasts award-winning, independent shops, and a 760-year-old weekly market that’s still the lifeblood of its community, a friendly place to catch the gossip. It’s also the starting point for one of the most popular and gruelling races in the Yorkshire calendar, the Kirkbymoorside 10k.
