Yorkshire

Take a look at our new Inspire and Explore section for the ultimate guide to holiday activities in the Yorkshire Dales.

The county of Yorkshire has a lot to offer visitors with a varied landscape of dales, moors and coast, a rich historical heritage, fascinating cities, market towns and picturesque villages. Yorkshire has a very distinctive character and is rightly considered one of Britain’s premier holiday destinations.

Once you arrive in Yorkshire you’ll see why it’s called ‘God’s Own County’. Take for example the wild, beautiful expanse of the Yorkshire Dales, which actually consists of lots of different Dales each with their own unique character, covering in total some 554 square miles of heather moorland, rich pasture land, and characterful Dale’s villages and of course dry stone walls. Much of this area is protected and forms the famous Dales National Park; the perfect place for walking and cycling amongst some of Britain’s most stunning landscapes.

To the east is another National Park; The North York Moors National Park extends all the way to the Yorkshire coast. This is a place of wide open spaces and wind swept heather moorland, an extensive network of footpaths and bridleways as well as hidden valleys where you’ll discover pretty villages. It’s also home to the North Yorkshire Moors Steam railway which runs from Pickering to Whitby (and back) and is a great day out for both adults and children.

The Yorkshire coast has been attracting holidaymakers since Victorian times and is renowned for its pretty fishing villages and bustling coastal resorts such as Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Here you’ll find family friendly clean sandy beaches and plenty of activities for visitors of all ages. The picturesque town of Whitby clusters around its fishing harbour where fishing boats and pleasure cruisers come and go. High above the town Whitby Abbey dominated the skyline and can be reached with a vigorous walk up some 199 steps.

To the south are the family resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington. Scarborough has two lovely horseshoe bays with golden sands and plenty to offer families and couples looking for a traditional seaside break. Filey and Bridlington also have lovely beaches and coastal promenades.

And there’s plenty more to Yorkshire including the wonderfully historical city of York, internationally renowned for its medieval architecture that includes one of the finest buildings in Europe; York Minster. Then there’s the Yorkshire Wolds; a quiet and peaceful place of undulating countryside and market towns. To the south of the region in West Yorkshire is Bronte Country and its dramatic brooding open moorlands and of course connections with the Bronte sisters.

    The Georgian Pad is a lovely spacious first floor apartment situated right in the heart of the old town of Bridlington, a relatively quiet place due to the fact that a lot of tourists who visit Bridlington are unaware that this part of the town exists. However, the old town is full of charm and history which can be seen just by rambling through the streets and alleyways. The street is full of life with very good restaurants, antique and craft shops. Each year the Dickensian Fair is held here, with performers and musicians to entertain you. From the window of the apartment, you can spend many an hour watching the world go by. With an array of beautiful Georgian buildings around, the architecture is stunning. There is an excellent view of the Bayle, which was built as the gateway to the priory church, and it now houses a museum. The church was originally part of one of England’s leading monasteries. The surviving nave of the church is now a thriving parish church with a wealth of historic features.

    Bridlington is a traditional seaside resort with something for all age groups - a perfect base to visit the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Wolds. Further along the coast, visit the resorts of Scarborough, Filey and Flamborough Head. The RSPB bird sanctuary at Bempton is close by where you will find puffins, gannets and guillemots in their natural habitat. The chalk cliffs provide a safe haven for their breeding season. The stately homes of Sewerby Hall, Burton Agnes and Sledmere are all just a short drive away.
