A very North Yorkshire welcome to our Visit-Easingwold website, an information source designed to help you plan and enjoy your stay in the Easingwold & Villages area here in North Yorkshire - part of God's own Country!
Location, Location, Location!
As we all know here in Easingwold and our picturesque villages, we are indeed ideally located in the centre of North Yorkshire in the beautiful countryside just to the north of the unique and historic City of York.
We are uniquely blessed with fast, easy access travel links to York itself and also all of the major destinations in North
Yorkshire that you may want to visit during your stay - whether it be the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors, the world famous Dinosaur Coast with Scarborough, Filey and Whitby, Heartbeat Country and everywhere else in between.
We have everything you need here, and the green rolling countryside as well! Yorkshire Life magazine agrees and summed us up with “a relaxed atmosphere”, has “easy-peasy parking” and is “a nice place to live” – (and presumably stay)! Easingwold has a “hidden gem” - its Georgian Market Square is superb and it is easy to see why visitors come back time and time again to take in the atmosphere of a piece of original and unspoilt Yorkshire.
A Food Lovers Paradise!
The Easingwold area is rapidly carving out a name for itself as a food lovers paradise. Look, smell and taste the freshness at a raft of real farm shops in our area.
Not just us, but “the “Independent” advised its readers recently that Easingwold “is becoming and essential foodie pit stop” and ranked our “Fine Foods of Yorkshire
” in the top 3 Delis of Britain!
In fact we have an award winning deli in virtually every part of the town, with our fantastic “Tea Hee” Tearooms
which was listed by “The Times” in 2008 as one of the best in England. A happy and welcoming smile is guaranteed as soon as you walk in!
On the other hand our beautiful Villages have an ever-growing list of award winning restaurants – why not try the Durham Ox
in our local village of Crayke winner of the Yorkshire Pub of the Year, 2008/9 AA Pub of the Year, Free House of the Year and Yorkshire Pub of the Year.
Visit also our Michelin starred Black Swan
in the lovely countryside around Oldstead which has just won the coveted 2010/2011 AA Pub of the Year award!
Come into Easingwold’s market square, or our many but individual and delightful villages, enjoy the traditional atmosphere of our local Yorksire pubs and dine on the superb food in our restaurants. You just won't find better! To cap it off, even our Fish and Chip shop won First Prize in "Herriot Country" food awards last year!
Two National AA Pub of the Year Awards in 3 years? Our region is certainly doing something right. Come and find out why for yourself!

But more than that, more than anything, we are a peaceful haven where you can relax in our lovely Market Town or surrounding villages without the noise, crowds and parking problems found in the City. Just ask anyone who is lucky enough to live here.
Easingwold Tourist Information is run by a team of commited and enthusiastic volunteers who both run the office and raise money to fund our own overheads, receiving receive no income from Goverment bodies or local Councils. Why on earth do we do this? Well, lets just say we really enjoy welcoming you, our visitor, to our area - and to ensure that you have a great time during your stay. And hopefully, you will want to return once again to our lovely coner of North Yorkshire.
For your additional interest, we were featured in a recent edition of the regional Yorkshire Post Newspaper -
to see the article and find out who we are and what we do.
We have impressed those much further afield and in 2011 a film crew came up from the Department of Community
and Local Govenment to make a short video about how we serve our local community. View the video here

It's a fact
Sqdn Ldr. Jack Currie was a famous WW2 bomber pilot who lived in our area. Some time after leaving the RAF he got a job as an instructor with the Home Office Defence School situated at Hawk Hills, Easingwold. During these post war years he decided to write his memoirs of his wartime experience as a pilot of a Lancaster Bomber. This book had the title of \"Lancaster Target\" which became very popular and sold in the thousands. He wrote this book whilst visiting the George Hotel in Easingwold in the evening whilst enjoying a pint. Sadly he died much too soon and is now at laid at rest in Easingwold church cemetery where one can view his unusual gravestone which mentions the fact that he was a famous wartime pilot and author. His funeral service was attended by hundreds of people, including the members of the BBC who produced a film of him being interviewed in respect of his wartime period when he was stationed at Wickenby in Lincolnshire.
