Norton is the gateway to the Yorkshire Wolds, renowned for its olde worldlye charm and unspoilt tranquillity, with top attractions like Wolds Lavender and Scampston Hall on the doorstep.

It’s also passionate about horses: once home to chariot-driving Celts, today it’s celebrated racehorse country. You can go behind-the-scenes at local racing each September during the annual Festival of Racing, watch horses training on the thrilling wold-top gallops, or enjoy your own exhilarating ride or ramble through Ride Yorkshire.

And if that’s not exhilarating enough, there’s nearby Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo - a fantastic family day out with over 100 rides, shows and attractions, and over 140 species of animals in the zoo.
