Mini guide to Barnsley

     

Situated at the edge of the Peak National Park and at the foot of the powerful Pennines, the friendly Yorkshire market town of Barnsley makes an excellent base for exploring the beautiful hill country and secluded wooded valleys in the area.

The trans-Pennine Trail that runs right through the town makes it a popular destination for nature lovers and hikers, but for less vigorous recreation there are four excellent golf courses, as well as sailing, horseriding and a wide variety of fishing options.

The nearby historic village of Cawthorne, featuring the Cannon Hall Museum Park and Gardens, is well worth a visit, with a majestic 18th century country house set within splendid grounds. Three miles away is Wentworth Castle, an 18th Century Grade II-listed building of significant historical importance, set in acres of beautiful gardens.

Barnsley town centre is famous for its 700-year-old Open Market. Still thriving today it features over 1,000 specialist stalls selling everything from fish to antiques. The large market hall and meat and fish markets are open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The open and semi-open markets with 220 stalls are open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Modern Centres such as Leeds, Bradford and Sheffield are a short drive away and offer excellent shopping together with museums, galleries and many other attractions. The magnificent city of York (approximately one hour's drive away) is steeped in history and a sight seeing trip around York Minster is a must.

Barnsley is located at the heart of England with excellent motorway links from the M1, M62 and A1. Barnsley Interchange railway station is within walking distance and is served by trains running between Sheffield and Leeds.
