Your guide to Yorkshire

The historic county of Yorkshire in northern England boasts two stunning National parks, a wonderfully rich Viking and Roman heritage, and a pretty coastline. From its busy towns and traditional seaside resorts to its picture-postcard villages and serene nature spots, Yorkshire has everything you could need for the perfect getaway.

Whether your ideal break involves rambling through miles of unspoilt countryside, unwinding on a secluded beach or hunting down the best local restaurants serving the freshest produce, Yorkshire is the perfect destination. This northern county offers so many contrasts no two stays are ever the same.

The coast charms visitors with its miles of white sandy beaches and rugged cliffs. High on the list of Yorkshire’s most-loved seaside resorts is Scarborough, a quintessentially British seaside resort with glorious clean beaches and jaw-dropping scenery. Expect a warm welcome from this friendly town, which sits against a backdrop of pretty coastline and contains some of the county’s best fish and chips.

With all of the popularity and charm of Scarborough, the ancient seaport of Whitby attracts a similarly loyal following of visitors year after year with its cheerful atmosphere and magnificent setting. Nestled against the backdrop of the North York Moors National Park, this wonderful seaside destination offers the perfect base to explore the Heritage Coast, with dramatic cliffs, quaint villages and breathtaking beauty everywhere you go.

Put on your walking boots and lose yourself in the tranquil North York Moors with more than 1,400 miles of spectacular forests, rolling hills and sparkling coastline to explore, or discover the many castles, historic abbeys and priories, dotted amongst the secluded villages and hamlets. Hire a bike and see more of the jaw-dropping landscape or explore some of the charming towns with their friendly pubs serving fresh Yorkshire produce, including the very best Yorkshire puddings!

Head to the Dales where the outstanding scenery is interrupted only by the majestic abbeys and grand castles that pepper the landscape. You can also explore the North Dales with their moorland and hay meadow valleys laced with dry stone walls, or discover the South Dales with their abundance of pretty cottages and cosy country pubs.

Visit the bustling city of Hull in East Yorkshire, voted the 2017 UK City of Culture, relax and enjoy the spectacular serene landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, dotted with quaint medieval towns, or venture into York City, where pretty cobbled streets weave amongst the spectacular architecture, crowned by the iconic York Minster. South Yorkshire is only a drive away, where you’ll find many cultural and sporting events, alongside a host of attractions. With so much to see and do in Yorkshire, a welcoming hotel to return to at the end of the day is a must. Our Yorkshire hotels offer clean and comfortable accommodation with upgrade options, spacious surroundings to relax in and a great programme of evening entertainment for the perfect stay.

Local Attractions

Peasholm Park

This delightful park is never closed and can be enjoyed by all. The park has a lake and a wide range of boats can be hired during the summer, from rowing boats and canoes to pedalos. With a bandstand in the lake, you can regularly hear fantastic music being played whilst you sail along the lake in the warm summer sun. Two cafés are open during the tourist season if you want to get a drink, snack or ice cream whilst you enjoy these beautiful surroundings. 

Scarborough Spa

Although the name suggests something different, Scarborough Spa is a venue that plays host to a huge variety of quality entertainment. With big-name comedians, top music acts and a huge variety of other events, you’ll be spoilt for choice when planning your evening programme.

Falling Foss Tea Garden and Waterfall

Nestled in a simply magical area of picturesque woodland, the Falling Foss waterfall is a 30-foot drop that can be particularly spectacular after a period of rain. At the top of the falls, you’ll find a tiny, enchanting tea garden in the grounds of Midge Hall that serves tempting cream teas, light lunches and delicious ice creams.

RNLI Whitby Museum

The Victorian double boathouse holds an amazing collection of paintings, photographs and medals from shipwrecks and rescues. The museum is housed in a double boathouse that was used by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution from 1895-1957. Models and mementos can be seen in the museum, which provides accounts of famous rescues and shipwrecks.

York Minster

No trip to Yorkshire would be complete without a visit to its beautiful cathedral with its awe-inspiring stained-glass windows, detailed stonework and vast, hauntingly beautiful spaces. Journey through 2,000 years of fascinating history and discover the people that lived in the shadow of the Minster, through interactive displays and exhibitions that bring its stories and treasures to life.
