Stockton is also well known for its high street which is the widest in the UK and home to a weekly market, which dates back to 1310.
Georgian buildings make up a large part of the town centre where many historic yards have been retained such as Wasp Nest Yard, and Hambletonian Yard adding plenty of character.
