Northern England region
The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline. A haven for walkers, the area also boasts great cycling, gliding, riding and fishing, whilst North York Moors Railway is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful scenery in a more relaxed setting.
Visit the market towns of Pickering or Thirsk; the latter famous for its links with the English country vet and author, James Herriot. Nearby, some of Yorkshire’s best-loved villages including Thornton-le-Dale and Rosedale Abbey offer a taste of village life, as does Goathland, ‘Aidensfield’ in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’. Finally, stop off at Castle Howard and Duncombe Park, two of Britain’s most historic stately homes situated in breathtaking parklands and gardens.
The cliffs, sandy beaches and smugglers’ caves of the Yorkshire coastline are a haven for beachcombers and coastal walkers. Discover the quaint fishing villages of Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes, with their brightly coloured fishing boats. Finally, there’s the historic city of York, with its interactive Viking Centre, Roman walls, medieval streets, vibrant shops and gothic York Minster cathedral.
The English seaside town of Scarborough has been welcoming holiday makers for many years and still retains many of its original fine buildings. The North Bay has a safe, sandy beach and Sealife Center, whilst the golden sands of the South Bay are broken by a rocky headland on which stands Scarborough Castle. The Royal Albert Drive connecting the two bays features a new state of the art bmx/skateboard park and is ideal for sea-fishing. The newly redeveloped harbour area and foreshore is a great place for people that enjoy pavement cafe culture. However, traditionalists may prefer to enjoy fish and chips followed by an ice-cream cone and visit to the amusement arcades!
Scarborough Castle is well worth exploring and a great spot for a pic-nic on a sunny day. Peasholm Park has a beautiful lake where all sorts of boats can be hired from rowing boats to dragon headed pedalos, and visitors can while away the time messing about on the water. There are many attractions in and around this lovely seaside town, and with its wide range of restaurants, cafés and shops, Scarborough is a marvellous centre for a family holiday.
