“Always find a gem or two! ”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Regular shopper!
Once you get through the brica brac and have a dig around there are so many things to find.
Along side bigger stores, cafés and pubs it's ideal for a day out retail therapy in nicer surroundings than a busy shopping center.
Close to transport links and great Yorkshire scenery.

Worth a visit!

“Nice little market + on-street stalls”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Small market square with plenty of hardware, clothes, etc stalls. There are also stalls on the nearby street selling fruit & veg, eggs, etc.
Plenty of pubs nearby; there seems to be one on every corner.
Pleasant little town but not a favourite.

“A traditional market town”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Otley is a small but perfectly formed traditional market town. No train station, but good bus links to Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate. Lots of parking, both free and paying, but on a warm Saturday you can drive around a bit to get a space.
There is a market in the square every Friday and Saturday, with stalls selling fruit and veg, baked goods, clothes, accessories and bric a brac. On the last Sunday of each month the square also holds a local farmers market.

The rest of the town, has some good little shops mixed in with a couple of chains and lots of charity shops. Plenty of cafes, pubs and takeaways.

There is also a lovely park with a playground and pleasant riverside walks.

Overall a nice place to visit for a day out.

“A Yorkshire Gem”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Not only is Otley a smashing little market town to visit on market day, but a visit here any time is enjoyable. Take a walk around the shops and alleys, visit the park and river and generally take in the atmosphere of the Yorkshire dale, the river here is the Wharfe, hence the name "Wharfedale". When, after your walk you are feeling a bit peckish, there are plenty of tea rooms and fish and chip shops . Also, if the mood takes you, Otley is reknown for the number of Public Houses in the town. If you've never been to the town, take a trip there, you wont be dissapointed.
