    We enjoyed visiting this museum. There are a few spaces on site for parking but not many. They were all full when we arrived so we found a space a couple of minutes walk away. The museum is set over a few floors and there are some further areas outside to the rear. From what I gather the museum is mainly run by volunteers. Our daughter was given a quiz to do as we went round which she enjoyed. She was also asked to choose the working model she'd like to see switched on so she liked that too. There were various crafts people demonstrating on the day we went. I enjoyed watching the blacksmiths working. My daughter had a go at shaping some butter and she liked playing the bagatelle game in the 'pub'. We really enjoyed our visit to Beck Isle museum. Ticket prices are very reasonable and under 5's are free.

    Discovered this lovely little church walking from town returning to the long stay car park in Pickering. Hubby and I enjoy a peek in the local churches. The windows are beautiful, particularly the large one at the top of the church with the blue glass, it was a sunny day and it looked like the sky.

    I was drawn to the tribute to the fallen of WW1 and WW2 plaques on the wall and below is very well researched album about those who served. Someone has dedicated some time in completing the information and it was a very fitting tribute. I am interested in WW2 history as my late father served in Bomber Command as a Flight Engineer in Lancasters, there is someone who also served in the same role as my late father in the album. Next time I visit I will need to return to read more about him.

    Worth a visit, and will return.

    Absolutely loved this brewery tour, our guide Josh knew his stuff and brought ALOT of dry comedy to the day. We tasted about 6 of the beers brewed here, all amazing but my favourite was ‘Festive Beer’. Would defo recommend this if you are local and visiting the area!

    We visited Pickering Castle on the way to Eden Camp in North Yorkshire . The Castle was original built by William the Conqueror and is a fine example of a Motte & Bailey Castle . Originally built of Timber and then rebuilt in stone up to the 14th Century . It then fell into disrepair .
    The site is run by English Heritage who maintain it with the proceeds from the Admission Fees . There is a small Gift shop on the site .
    There are great views from the top of what is left of the Keep . The outer walls are in fair condition and the Towers spaced around the outer walls are quite intact . A very interesting Castle with plenty of information on its History is available

    Absolutely excellent service, me and 3 others had gone to Dalby Forest to originally go to Go Ape but that got cancelled due to there being lightning strikes in the area so we thought we’d hire bikes and go on an adventure, well it was fantastic, the lads in the cycle hub were really friendly and helpful and got us out on 4 electric mountain bikes as soon as we’d filled the paperwork in and we can all genuinely say we think we had more fun doing that than what we would of if we went to Go Ape like planned, will definitely be coming back in the near future to do the rest of the red route.

    The visit that most thrilled our daughter and her husband plus both grandchildren (ages 7 and 9). They have since been watching by Blown Away on tv. The village of Rosedale is beautiful, with great public loos and there was space on seats for picnics and the children also enjoyed the great playground.

    We have been to Scarborough Spa pantomime, and York Grand Opera. Pantomime.

    This show at the Kirk Theatre in Pickering by local amateur societies is by far the best.
    A lovely traditional theatre, enthusiastic staff and a wonderful panto!
    What can you say. Well done Pickering.

    Visited here on a previous trip, and was not disappointed. The history of the place is a legacy to those that worked there. Surrounding views are amazing.

    We have to come here every time we visit Dalby as my kids love it. They spend hours at a time on the various tracks and jumps and get more daring every time we come. We always take a picnic and make a day of it. It’s a cheap day out as you only have to pay your entry fee for Dalby forest.

    As title, the building is impressive and when you see the local loss of men recorded, it makes you feel that war is a total waste of life, for no real positive outcome. Corrupting what I believe was a Shakespeare play..Henry the 8th..if you want to stop a war then you first start with shooting all the Politicians and Lawyers..peace in the community returns!

    Slightly weird, parked at Levisham station and a steep walk to the elbow of the road. Then a flat walk. So maybe 1.5 miles. Shoes wises, better to wear walking shoes or boots, but manageable in trainers in the dry. So why weird? Well maybe 0.25 mile of climbing and 1.2 miles of flat to see a stunning view!

    The views once you get to the tower are stunning and well worth the time you take to walk there.

    Honestly, this site is not getting enough love on Tripadvisor.

    Get back and have a bit of cake and hot drink at the Train station.

    Thank you previous folk on Tripadvisor for writing your reviews.
