Market Weighton is a thriving market town in the Yorkshire Wolds. The town has a charming duck pond and Georgian and Victorian streets with shops selling local produce. Notable architecture includes a parish church, the Londesborough Arms (an 18th-century coaching inn) a Wesleyan chapel, a Methodist chapel and a high street still recognisable from the 19th century. Its most famous resident was William Bradley, born in 1787, who grew his way into the Guinness Book of Records as Englands tallest man. There is a Giant Bradley Heritage Trail and in May, residents take to the streets for the Giant Bradley Day Festival.
Perfect for walkers and cyclists, Market Weighton offers a range of trails, paths and treks. The Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail, a long-distance footpath, passes through the town, as does Minster Way and the National Cycle Route 66. The Hudson Way footpath from Beverley to Market Weighton is a 10-mile walk following the now disused railway line. Two miles from the town is the little village of Goodmanham, with its Norman All Hallows church. The celebrated Kiplingcotes Derby takes place just outside Market Weighton each March and is the oldest flat race in England.
