Things to do in Yorkshire
The biggest county in England, there are so many things to do in Yorkshire that it is a brilliant place to visit. Home to seven cities and two National Parks, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing what to do and see first.
Known throughout the country as ‘God’s own County’, Yorkshire is the true gem of Northern England. Its beautiful landscape is perfect for those visitors who are looking to do some walking, cycling, or climbing in the county’s two National Parks: the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. On the edge of the Moors lies the dramatic Yorkshire coastline which is littered with beautiful beaches and lovely seaside towns, ideal for any wandering tourist.
Yorkshire doesn’t fall short when it comes to cosmopolitan areas either. The county city of York is a medieval delight and absolutely packed full of interesting things to see and do. Another idyllic place to visit is Harrogate, known historically for being a fashionable spa resort thanks to the nearby mineral springs. And for even more metropolitan explorations you can venture further afield to the larger cities of Hull, Sheffield, or Leeds if you’re looking for some big city adventures.
