Easingwold once stood in the middle of the Norman hunting preserve of the Forest of Galtres. The forest has long since gone but the distinctive name is still used in the town.
In the coaching era, Easingwold, only 13 miles north of York, was the first staging post on the road north and enjoyed great prosperity, boasting some 26 public houses and inns.
Visitors will find ample free parking within easy walking distance of the delightful Market Square, where the weekly Friday outdoor market is held. The Square is surrounded by Georgian buildings hidden away behind the main road, and there are numerous antique and speciality shops to provide very enjoyable browsing.
A town walk leaflet is available from the Tourist Information Point giving a guide to many attractive features and landmarks around the Town Square.OS grid reference SE 535 695
