Short stay car park with a maximum stay of one hour.  Convenient for brief stops, grabbing sandwiches/supplies for a day out or a quick shop.  This car park is closed on Thursdays to make way for Ripon’s bustling market which runs all day, every week. Park in the heart of Ripon to explore its medieval streets, enjoy great shopping and refreshments all within a few minutes’ walk. Ripon is the smallest city in Yorkshire, and its compact nature is perfect for visitors and this car park places you right at the heart of it.  The historic attractions of the gothic Cathedral and the three law and order museums are all a few hundred yards away. Blue badge holders and motor cycles park for free. About the Market Place Ripon’s Market square has formed the centre of the city since the 13th Century when it was laid out by the Archbishop of York in 1215 AD. Facing the market square is the Town Hall, a grade II listed building built in 1719 with a striking presence that houses the Ripon Tourist Information Centre where you can find all the information you need for your visit. In the centre of the square is the Obelisk which is even older, over 300 years old having been constructed in 1702. It is also around the Obelisk that Ripon’s most curious tradition takes place.  For over 800 years the Ripon Hornblower has ‘set the watch’ in the market square.  The ‘watch’ is set by the hornblower sounding the ceremonial horn at each corner of the Obelisk every night at 9pm. The nightly act has now become a popular attraction, and the Hornblowers have become experts on the history of their office and of Ripon itself, entertaining and informing the visitors who assemble in the market place on an evening to observe.   Read more
