Masham Tourist Information Centre
The Mashamshire Tourist & Community Office opened in July 2003, the result of a local initiative to convert an unused Police House into a one-stop community facility.
Covid-19 Update : The Masham information centre is monitoring phone messages and emails, but is not open to the public for the forseeable future.
The Office is in the Little Market Place in front of the imposing Town Hall. The main Market Square with its beautiful Georgian houses was created in the 18th century. The huge market place would originally have been surrounded by thatched cottages and was the site for annual Sheep Fair which still continues today on the last weekend of September. Masham has not-to-be-missed treats in the food and drink department! Famous for our beer, we boast not just one, but two breweries, both making real ales in the traditional way. There are interesting follies to explore in Hackfall Woods, close to Masham and also the Druid’s Temple, on the Swinton Estate.
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be able to help you make the most of your visit supplying information on Masham and the surrounding area with local attractions, places to eat, places to stay, walks and neighbouring towns.
Masham Tourist Office has a wide range of publications, local guides, maps and souvenirs to help you make the most of your visit and can also provide the following services:
• Advice on Local Accommodation
• Local information regarding shopping, local markets, attractions, events
• Information on What to See and Where to Eat throughout the area
