the holiday and travel guide to the UK

Malton, a market town of two parts, Old Malton, with its stone houses and St Mary's Priory, and the town that grew originally around a Norman Castle, the modern day Malton.

Over the river you can find Norton on Derwent, a centre for racehorse training, but really it's all one town.

Plenty of shops here and a market is still held here. It's major industries were farming and brewing, but only one brewery remains today.

The nearest town to Castle Howard.
