A range of quality retail units within the established Castle Courtyard Complex in the Market Place of Knaresborough town centre.


Knaresborough is an historic market town and spa town (mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086), in the Borough of Harrogate.  It is located on the picturesque River Nidd 4 miles east of the centre of Harrogate and approximately 15 miles west of York.

The town has excellent transport links being only 4 miles from the A1(M) and regular train services to Leeds and York together with a bus station close by on the high street.  The town has a total population of circa 15,500+ with 75% over 35 years old and nearly 50% above 55 years.  The town is well served by King James’s School in the centre of Knaresborough where we understand there are in the region of 2,000 pupils attending on a daily basis.  We understand that planning permission has been granted for a development close to Knaresborough town centre incorporating a further 600 dwellings enhancing the importance of the town.

The units form part of the Castle Courtyard Shopping Complex fronting the market place.  Nearby occupiers include Boots the Chemist, The Wine Shop, Thomas the Baker, Café Nero, Betfred and The Library.

Each unit provides a self-contained retail shop with the benefit of a managed complex with ancillary utility and WC facilities.
