Yorkshire is a historic county in the north of England, known for its Viking and Norman heritage. Often referred to as God’s Own County, it offers a mountain of things to do, from Norman castles and medieval abbeys to the spectacular 13th century cathedral, York Minster. From the renowned Yorkshire Dales and National Park with their wild and brooding moors and pleasant rolling dales, you couldn’t find a more scenic region to visit. The Yorkshire Three Peaks takes in three of the highest summits in the area and is a must for the intrepid hiker. Yorkshire is split into four counties so you can find something for everyone - the ancient Yorkshire Coast especially is perfect for sea lovers. Its pretty little fishing villages and rocky coves are great for keen explorers and the cobbled streets of York are wonderful for shopping and visiting galleries and museums. Bridlington is the perfect place for a fun-packed day at the beach with the family - traditional entertainment sits side by side with pretty coloured fishing boats bringing home the day’s catch.
