Yorkshire

Yorkshire is England’s largest county and has two beautiful National Parks, the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, both very different and ideal for touring, walking and cycling. The Yorkshire Dales is defined by its green rolling hills, dry stone walls, pretty villages, waterfalls, attractions, sheep on the hills, market towns and made famous by Yorkshire Vet, James Herriot. The North York Moors National Park, in the summertime is covered with purple heather, which looks spectacular. There are some wonderful villages, streams and market towns, a steam train which takes you to the coast to the town of Whitby, where Captain Cook set sail to discover Australia and New Zealand! Not to be missed is the historic and fascinating city of York, offering 30 attractions including York Minster, the JORVIK Viking Centre, Barley Hall, Richard lll Experience and National Railway Museum.  Enjoy the tearooms, shopping, boat trips and evening ghost walks!

Access into Yorkshire is very easy, via Leeds Bradford Airport, Hull ferry port from the Netherlands and Belgium and from Manchester Airport or from London to York the journey time by rail is just 2 hours!
