Malton is a pleasant market town in North Yorkshire. It is located on the north bank of the River Derwent which forms the historic boundary between the North and East Ridings. The town stands on the site of a former Roman settlement.

Malton is set amidst rich agricultural country and there are several noted racing stables and studs in the district.

Malton Museum, just off the Market Square, is home to a fascinating and imaginatively displayed collection of Roman artefacts discovered locally. In addition, the museum currently hosts a superb exhibition showcasing the work carried out and finds uncovered at the site of local medieval village Wharram Percy.
