Riverside Meadows Caravan Park, Ripon - Local Area
Riverside Meadows nestles on the side of the River ure, encircled by the beautiful rolling countryside of North Yorkshire. The park is a few minutes walk from the historic market town of Ripon, with its magnificent cathedral which houses an ancient saxon crypt dating back from Ad 672.

Every Thursday, Ripon holds a market on the market square, a tradition that has been carried out for years. Stalls include: fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers, fresh fish, clothes, jewellery, and much more.
You are within comfortable driving distance of big shopping outlets and high streets such as: The Shambles in York, The Shopping Centres in Leeds, Teesside Park and Newcastle's Metro centre.
