Kirkbymoorside is a small market town situated on the southern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park approximately half way between Helmsley and Pickering.
Through the years, two castles have stood in the town and small fragments of one can be seen to this day on the north edge of the town. Stones from one castle were used to build the Toll House in the centre of the market place.
A wide variety pubs and restaurants can be found in the town and good sprinkling of local shops with the customary good service and courteous treatment of their customers. Wednesday is market day in Kirkbymoorside. One of the most famous residents was the 2nd Duke of Buckingham who had an interesting life, culminating in a mysterious death in Buckingham House, Kirkbymoorside.
The town markets itself as 'Kirkbymoorside - Gateway to the Moors' and this is depicted by a feature in the centre of the roundabout on the A170.
