The cathedral city of Ripon is in the borough of Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Packed with 1,300 years of rich and well-preserved historic buildings, monuments and museums, the city is just waiting to be explored. With a wealth of attractions and beautiful countryside within a few miles, and Ripon's renowned, all-year-round music, arts and cultural events, you'll find something for everyone to enjoy.
One of the most significant sites within the city is Ripon Cathedral, which has been welcoming worshippers since the 7th century, when Saint Wilfrid built one of England's first stone churches on the site. You can see the 800 years of master craftsmen's work in wood and stone within the nave and choir. A Workhouse has stood in Ripon since 1776. The Workhouse was almost self-sufficient, and today you can discover the grim atmosphere that those who lived there had to endure, which has been carefully maintained in the Workhouse Museum.
