If there is availablilty:

White Swan - upmarket and on the Market Place itself.

No 17 - a nice small hotel on Burgate, just off the Market Place but up the hill towards the castle.

Black Swan - traditional pub at the top of the Market Place with accommodation.

Is Pickering mainly flat? There is not a lot of Pickering and one main hill! The Market Place itself is on a slope but is not too bad. At the top of it is a hill up to the castle which is steeper and could well present a problem for someone with limited mobility. Eastgate,Hungate and Westgate form the A170 going through town and they are flat. How far can your wife walk? Is she OK on the flat?

Alternative hotels on the main road (parallel to Market Place where the music is) include the Forest &Vale and The Crossways. The are about 5mins from the Market Place but can be accessed on the flat by a snicket.

No 17 is lovely but up the hill. All have parking so you can park the car and leave it for the weekend as parking can be very difficult. The KirK Theatre is just behind the Market Place on the A170 for the Friday evening concert.

(I've seen them on an earlier tour and it was a good night for the mother-in-law)
