Welcome to Leyburn, a busy little market town located in mid-Wensleydale and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town can boast one of the highest market places in the country and one of the most scenic panoramic views across the Yorkshire Dales from the Shawl, only two minutes walk from the town centre.
Every Friday the main square is packed with stalls for the popular weekly market which attracts both visitors and locals. On the same day it is also worth a visit to the nearby Auction Mart, where you can watch the sales of livestock, predominantly sheep and lambs, which are at the heart of the local farming economy.
Leyburn has thrived over the last few years and its marvellous array of shops befits its position as the main market town of the dale.
