There’s a superb blend of the traditional and modern in Malton Norton, located either side of the River Derwent, just a short distance from the A64 between York and Scarborough.
The town has the distinction of a bustling high street and also a market square. It enjoys main road connections, a bus and train station, coach parking, a rich Roman heritage, distinctive 18th century buildings, a cinema, soft play area and swimming pool, general and farmers markets on Saturdays and auction marts on weekdays.
Malton/Norton is forever finding new ways to meet the needs of its local catchment area. Lunchtime music, pavement cafes and improved use of its riverside and Roman connections all help ensure it continues to shine as a true Yorkshire gem.
The town also serves as an ideal springboard to top attractions including Castle Howard, Eden Camp, Flamingo Land and the neighbouring tourism magnets of Pickering, Helmsley, York and Scarborough.
