Worksop is a thriving market town located at the northern
edge of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire. Believed to have
been in existence since Anglo Saxon times, the town is aptly
dubbed the ‘gateway to the Dukeries’ referring to the great
number of ducal country estates which lie close by.
This influence is even reflected in the town centre where coloured stone is set into the paving on the pedestrian streets, depicting the local heraldic crests. There is also a paved maze featuring a heraldic lion and unicorn, giving the town a sense of real historical character.
Today Worksop is home to over 40,000 people and the town, whilst retaining its historic charm has developed to serve the needs of the local community and the many visitors to its picturesque surroundings.
Worksop is a bustling market town, which hosts regular open-air markets including a monthly farmers’ market and other popular events such Continental Markets.
The town’s retail offers an exciting mixture of both high street names such as Boots, Dorothy Perkins, Burtons, New Look, Claire’s Accessories and Matalan, together with numerous small niche and specialist shops.
The Priory Shopping centre, located at the northern end of Bridge Street is for many the main focus of retail activity with key names such as WH Smiths, Woolworths, Wilkinson’s, Peacocks and Evans.
