Settle's Shopping Experience

The vast majority of Settle shops are independently owned by people who live in the local area. Their shops inhabit buildings which have been occupied over the years by many generations of shop owners whose goods and services reflected the particular needs and aspirations of their era.

The beauty of visiting an independent shop is that you are guaranteed to be served by someone with a real passion for their products and helpful expertise that will guide you towards making the right purchase. A friendly face and excellent customer service are a hallmark of the Settle shopping experience.

The shopping area is centred around the historic market place, that was granted a Market Charter in 1248 by Henry III and is overlooked by the majestic Castleberg Crag that towers over the town. The shopping area extends along Duke Street, Church Street, Cheapside, High Street, Chapel Street, Kirkgate, Station Road, Commercial Courtyard and Bishopdale Court. This central area is very compact and the avid shopper will undoubtedly be rewarded by exploring all the twists and turns, ginnels and courtyards.

There are three car parks that service the town centre, all reasonably priced and located very close to the shops.

An enjoyable shopping experience isn't restricted to Settle Town Centre. We recommend you seek out The Courtyard dairy on the A65 between Settle and Austwick, Watershed Mill on the road between Settle and Langcliffe and Town Head Farm Shop at Airton in Malhamdale.
