The Ship Inn, Ripon

The Ship Inn is a traditional Tudor-style residential inn and pub located near the centre of Ripon, a small cathedral city in North Yorkshire. The beautiful Ripon Cathedral and the town centre are both less than five minutes away, and it’s only a mile to the Ripon Racecourse. The Ship’s Inn is an ideal stop for cyclists on the Way of the Roses and it’s also a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors.


Ripon is a small cathedral city with a market square and lovely, historic buildings. The city centre has plenty of charming, independent restaurants, cafes and shops to discover. There’s also a scenic trail along the River Skell that’s well worth exploring.


The four rooms in the Ship Inn are beautifully and comfortably furnished, with en suites for freshening up and secure storage available for bicycles. There’s also plenty of room in the car park for customers on four wheels. Both double twin rooms and a family-sized room are available.


Choose from the fabulous selection of beer and wine and enjoy the old fashioned pub-style atmosphere. Check in advance to see if there will be live music during your stay. In the morning, enjoy a complementary full English breakfast, continental breakfast or breakfast sandwich. In good weather, take advantage of the outdoor seating.
