Other markers of the past include the Market square, which features a 300 year old Obelisk. The weekly market is held here every Thursday and hosts lots of stalls selling fresh food, flowers, plants and clothes. This is also the site where the local Hornblower sounds his horn at 9pm every evening while other cultural attractions include an annual procession to celebrate the city's founder Wilfrid and traditional Morris dancing and long sword dancing.
Lovers of the outdoors can take a waterside stroll along Ripon canal or slightly further afield, visit Newby Hall with its spectacular gardens and woodland walks.
