Yorkshire, England's largest county, comprises four main areas; the City of York, North Yorkshire, West Riding and East Riding. The largest area is North Yorkshire, covering nearly 3,500 square miles. Yorkshire's landscape is picturesque and varied, including three national parks. The county is very welcoming with the local's Yorkshire wit, friendliness and humor a reason to visit in itself. It is home to vast swathes of unspoilt countryside, littered only with picturesque villages and genteel towns. For vibrant and lively areas, head to Leeds or Sheffield. Yorkshire also represents history - every facet of the British experience is represented here, from Roman times, to the Celtic tribes, to the War of the Roses, to the 20th century.
Things to do in Yorkshire
Yorkshire has endless attractions and activities for a short or an extended stay. First and foremost, driving through the hills and dales of the countryside is an activity unto itself - stopping for a picnic or taking pictures help to commit long lasting memories. From the Moors to the Dales, to east, south or west the Yorkshire area ‘wows' with its beauty. A hike, bicycle ride, a swim in a lake or river, or a day of sports is more than enough for a fun-filled week.
The cities and towns of Yorkshire offer plenty to see and do as well. Millions of visitors to the National Railway Museum in York have experienced the majesty and history of this form of transportation. The National Cole Mining Museum in Overton, a staple of British economy in the Industrial Revolution, is also a must-see. In Huby, watch falcons and hawks soar at the York Bird of Prey Centre. Stroll through the peaceful Royal Water Garden in Ripon or see the amazing planes at the Vulcan Experience in Doncaster. York especially has architecture, museums, man-made masterpieces and plenty of history to see.
