Culture and Entertainment
Whilst most towns with a similar population (7000) would feel lucky to have a single theatre, Pickering boasts no fewer than three thriving theatrical venues.

Outdoor Activities - Cycling, Walking and Fishing
Pickering is surrounded by beautiful countryside much of which can be accessed by bike or foot using our extensive network of public footpaths and bridleways, there are also several camping and caravaning sites within or very close to the town.
Those interested in fishing will find that Pickering has several ponds, lakes and rivers within a short distance as well as a stocked Trout lake on the edge of the town, this makes Pickering perfect for experienced anglers, novice fishers and children alike.
Newbridge Park, located at the edge of town, offers the opportunity to walk and cycle in a wonderful woodland setting. There are currently plans in place to create a community park, which will be located at the northern edge of the town.
