Northallerton, the county town of North Yorkshire, is a very pleasant market town in the northern part of the Vale of York, between the North York Moors and the Dales. Northallerton has a variety of national retailers mixed with local independent or regional retailers – and is home of the famous Betty’s tea rooms.
There are excellent recreational facilities and it is within easy reach of the urban centres of York, Leeds, Teesside and Newcastle. The town is on the main London to Edinburgh railway line and has services to Thirsk, Middlesbrough and Darlington.
Travelling by car is easy too. Northallerton is approximately five miles from both the A1(M) and A19. Durham Tees Valley, Newcastle and Leeds Bradford airports are all easily accessible too.
The Northallerton area is semi-rural and the GP practices are spread over quite a large area. Commuting is relatively simple and all of the practices involved with the LIC in 2021/22 are within 20 miles of the Friarage.
We hope that you will take opportunities to experience all that this beautiful region of North Yorkshire has to offer during the course of the academic year.
