Knaresborough : Michelin's recommendations


Dominated by its ruined castle keep, this small market town on the River Nidd developed from 1130 onwards. It was in this castle that the Constable Hugh de Morville and his three companions took refuge after murdering Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in December 1170. Beside the river is the Dropping Well, unique in Britain, cascading water into a pool.
