With its combination of breathtaking scenery and centuries of history, Yorkshire is a wonderful place to visit. Whether you want to visit a secluded fishing village, spend a morning browsing a farmer’s market or tour historic cathedrals and abbeys, the North of England’s largest county has something for everyone. Join us on a tour of ten of the best things to see and do in the home of the best cup of tea in England.
1. North Yorkshire
The location for some of Yorkshire’s most historic towns and cities – Whitby, Harrogate and York itself – the north of the region has a world of other treats to offer. It was North Yorkshire that was the setting for James Herriot’s well-loved series of books based on his experiences as a veterinary surgeon in the area, and its rolling hills and dales provide a haven for walkers, photographers and nature lovers.
Whilst there, why not pay visit to Scarborough Fair, inspiration for the famous song. Today it is home to a magnificent collection of vintage fairground rides, steam engines, cars and mechanical organs.
