The Local Area Guide to Living in Tadcaster

Tucked away in the Selby district of beautiful North Yorkshire lies the small market town of Tadcaster. Tadcaster was founded by the Romans, who named the original settlement Calcaria after the abundance of limestone that formed an important part of the local industry both then and now. While limestone may have been crucial for construction purposes back then, it also helped Tadcaster become a hotspot for the brewing industry. Today, Tadcaster is home to the John Smith's Brewery, the Coors Brewery and Samuel Smith's Old Brewery, which is also the oldest brewery in Yorkshire! As you would expect in a town with so many breweries, there are a whole host of cosy pubs dotted around Tadcaster - all of which serve up a great selection of food, drink and atmosphere.

Don't be fooled into thinking that brewing and drinking is the be-all-and-end-all of things to do in Tadcaster. Thanks to the town's Roman origins, Tadcaster also boasts a number of historic buildings and structures that are ripe for exploration.

Information about the local residents

The Census of 2011 revealed that 6,003 people currently call Tadcaster home. Its location 12 miles north-east of Leeds and 10 miles south-west of York make it a popular destination for professionals wishing to combine the laid-back lifestyle on offer in a small town such as Tadcaster, with a career in the city. Unsurprisingly, the town's three breweries also employ a fairly high number of local residents.

Nearby schools

Parents with young children will find three primary schools to choose from in Tadcaster. These include Tadcaster Primary Academy, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School and Tadcaster Riverside Community Primary School. Of these three, Tadcaster Riverside is the largest primary school.

Secondary level students will most likely find themselves attending Tadcaster Grammar school. This high school has close to 1,560 students that are taught all the way through to sixth form. 

Getting around

While there is no bus network available to take people around Tadcaster itself, there are a number of bus services that pass through the town en route to other settlements in the area. Coastliner buses run from Leeds through to Scarborough, passing through Tadcaster on the way. Other buses such as the 494 run from Tadcaster through to Selby. Unfortunately, Tadcaster does not have its own train station - so residents looking to travel to other cities by train will have to head to the nearby villages of Ulleskelf or Church Fenton. York Station is also only a short drive away and offers a greater number of services.

Local shops

Avid shoppers will probably find that Tadcaster is rather limited in terms of choice. While it may be home to a number of charming boutiques and independent stores, those seeking the familiar names of high street fashion will have to head elsewhere. Thankfully, the cities of York and Leeds are only short drives away, and both places are home to a number of great shopping centres. Crossgates Shopping Centre in Leeds boasts 60 different shops, including New Look, Carphone Warehouse and Costa. At the Coppergate Shopping Centre in York, shopaholics will be able to treat themselves to the latest threads from the likes of Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Topman.

When it comes to food shopping, Tadcaster is home to two Costcutter supermarkets and one Sainsbury's. For those seeking organic fresh fruit and veg - a trip to the Organic Pantry in nearby Newton Kyme is a must.
