Steeped in fascinating and eclectic history, Yorkshire is famed for its Roman and Viking heritage, including its Roman-founded county town of York. Peppered with Norman castles, Industrial Revolution-era cities and medieval abbeys, you’ll also discover a glorious coastline and two national parks.
(All that, and a wealth of unique places to stay, too!)
The North York Moors are made up of over 1,400 miles of natural beauty, home to pine forests, moorland, rolling hills and traditional villages. Bring those walking boots! The protected Yorkshire Dales National Park is another outdoor-lovers must, along with the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
South Yorkshire, once an industrial heartland, boasts many vibrant cultural pit stops, including the cities of Sheffield and Rotherham. The energising Peak District is found here, too.
But if it’s Yorkshire city life you crave, you’ll have to head for the ‘Knightsbridge of the North’, otherwise known as cosmopolitan Leeds! Meanwhile, lively Bohemian culture can be found in the creative streets of Hebden Bridge, once a writers’ and artists’ hotspot.
The world’s first UNESCO City of Film, Bradford is also the curry capital of Britain, while historic Wakefield is sure to enthral you with its heritage and diversity…don’t forget to visit the amazing Yorkshire Sculpture Park close by.
Oh, and you’re in for a treat with a visit to the Yorkshire coastline, which features rugged countryside and family-friendly beachside resorts, such as Hornsea, with its tranquil Blue Flag beach.
Round off your Yorkshire experience with a visit to the Harrogate District, a truly spectacular area filled with beautiful villages, elegant gardens, and of course, the original Betty’s tea room – a local institution founded in 1919.
