Step back in time and enjoy discovering Pickering’s fascinating heritage. Immerse yourself in the past and imagine having a drink in the pub, a haircut in the barber’s or queueing for sweets at the grocers. Watch our blacksmiths as they work in the forge (ring for times). Explore our agricultural and craft exhibitions before admiring images of Pickering Past by celebrated local photographer Sydney Smith (1884-1958). Why not extend your visit and bring a picnic to enjoy in our beautiful grounds by the beck?
