North Yorkshire: Combining Majestic History with Nature
Seaside resorts, exhilarating towns and one of the UK’s most visited cities in the form of York: North Yorkshire is an area that delivers a varied mix of nature, history, shops and attractions. Want to experience white-knuckle rides at a major theme park? Explore legendary castles? Or simply sample the best fish and chips? The county has all of this and much, much more – making it a great place to visit for every kind of traveller!
Main Areas of Interest
As the most expansive county in England, it is to be expected that North Yorkshire boasts a wealth of interesting areas to visit. Arguably the most popular – and impressive – is the historic walled city of York. Comprising heritage, culture, shopping, hotels and countless restaurants, York could well be seen as the ideal base for exploring the area – although the city packs in so much, discovering the rest of North Yorkshire might become an afterthought! Another destination that is a favourite with travellers is Scarborough. This seaside resort is the ideal place to grab an ice cream, take a stroll along one of its glorious beaches, and admire the picturesque scenery. A short journey from Scarborough is Whitby, with this seaside town being famous for numerous things including historic sites, beaches, a charming harbour… and even vampires! Other areas of interest in North Yorkshire are the elegant and relaxed spa town of Harrogate, while Middlesbrough provides a healthy mix of shopping, restaurants and nightlife options.
With just a paragraph available, trying to confine all of the best attractions in North Yorkshire is a difficult task. You have the iconic Transporter Bridge, Fountains Abbey, Whitby Abbey, Scarborough Castle, the Shambles in York etc. All of which come highly recommended by many. But in terms of ‘must-see’ places and activities, York’s National Railway Museum is arguably right at the top of the list. This expansive, award-winning museum contains more than 300 years of train-related history. Speaking of history and York, the York Minster and York Castle Museum are breath-taking attractions and no trip to the city – and even North Yorkshire in general – is complete without experiencing them. For a theme park experience, you not only have the exciting duo of Flamingo Land and Lightwater Valley, but also the revered Forbidden Corner. Yet the Forbidden Corner is not your ordinary theme park; it is a wonderland of hidden surprises and stunning sights at every turn. In terms of activities revolving around wartime Britain, few places offer the authenticity and interactivity of Eden Camp – which is housed around a former Prisoner of War camp. And for panoramic view of the county, make sure to head up Roseberry Topping.
Dining & Drinking
Food and drink is a prevalent highlight of any trip to North Yorkshire. In Whitby, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the famous British dish that is fish and chips. Not only does it feature the world-renowned Magpie Cafe and historic drinking holes, but it is also one of the most populous areas on the planet for fish shops. So much so that if your hotel is in the town centre, you’re typically never more than a few steps away from one! If in the Teesside area of North Yorkshire, you have to sample the local delicacy affectionately known as a parmo , which usually combines breaded chicken/pork, béchamel sauce and cheese – creating a tasty, calorific monster of a meal. And for a diverse mix of dining options that will satisfy even the most eclectic of tastes, York is your one-stop destination. That is because the city is figuratively bursting at the seams with over 600 restaurants, ranging from those serving traditional British cuisine to exotic Asian flavours. Not to mention that, with a lovely collection of quaint pubs and lively clubs, York also has a thriving nightlife scene.
Festivals & Events
Before you visit North Yorkshire, it is definitely worth checking the calendar to see what events and festivals are taking place during your planned trip. During the Christmas season, you can enjoy Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland, an annual celebration which offers a giant outdoor ice rink, vintage funfair rides and bargain shopping via the York Designer Outlet. Speaking of York, it is also home to the York Food and Drink Festival, Illuminating York, and Jorvik Viking Festival – the latter of which is known as the biggest Viking-themed festival in all of Europe. Other popular yearly festivals located throughout the county include the family-friendly and music-themed Willowman Festival, Skipton International Puppet Festival, and the delightfully diverse Deer Shed Festival. And as far as live events go, you will find an assortment of venues throughout North Yorkshire that host an array of sports, major music acts, theatre shows, famed comedians, and much more!
