Escrick is an attractive village just off the A19 between Selby and York. It has around 370 households and 1,100 residents. The village is made up of old and new houses which give it a great character. There is a village green with pond, a traditional local pub, a new gastro pub, a social club, a well equipped village hall and thriving primary school. There is the beautiful St Helen's church dating back to the 14th century. Behind the church is the doctor's surgery which has its own pharmacy. The village is also home to the Parsonage Hotel and Spa, and handful of B&Bs and the award-winning Sangthai restaurant. Queen Margaret's school (a private boarding school for girls) has been located in the old Escrick Hall in the village since 1949. Much of the village is part of the Escrick Conservation Area and surrounded by extensive parkland, woodland walks and the obligatory cricket ground.
The village enjoys an active social calendar, including summer and Christmas fairs, a 10k run, quiz nights, carols on the green and various other social events. There are many clubs and societies including Mother's Union, Tennis Club, Yorkshire Womens' Institute, Swimming Club, Young Farmers Association, and many more.
