In the locality
Tadcaster is a small, quiet, and friendly market town surrounded by beautiful North Yorkshire countryside. It has plenty of cosy pubs, shops and all the usual amenities you would expect to find. The Tadcaster market has a variety of stalls and takes place each Thursday in the Social Club car park.
The town has a leisure centre offering a wide range of sports and fitness classes, plus the swimming pool also has a fitness suite. The Carnival takes place every year, with a parade through the town to the Magnets Sports ground for live music, stalls and fairground rides, all ending with a spectacular firework display.
Points of interest
The town has an ancient viaduct bridge and charming church that are both well worth a visit. Originally built in 1150, St Mary's Church has been rebuilt twice since. This pretty church is well known for its fine carvings and famous William Morris east window. Wharfe Bridge is an imposing viaduct, with eleven large arches, built around 1700.
Tadcaster has long been associated with the brewing industry due to the quality and accessibility of the local water. Three breweries have survived into the present day, The Tower Brewery, John Smith’s and Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery, which is also the oldest brewery in Yorkshire and the only remaining independent brewery in Tadcaster.
