Guide To Holidaying In Yorkshire

A guide by Hayley Harp

Yorkshire Once known as the Kingdom of Deira, Yorkshire is full of history and can cater for both city and coastal breaks. The north-eastern county, the country's largest, has plenty to offer for all tastes.

The county town of York is one of the best places to discover the area's history, which goes back to Roman and Viking times. Tourists particularly flock to the city's historic cathedral, York Minster, Jorvick - the Viking city and the York Dungeon to take some of it in.

Other exciting cities to visit include Hull with its waterfront shops and nightlife, the popular and lively Leeds and Sheffield in the south of the county.

Don't let the number of cities tear you away from the countryside as there's plenty to see and do here too, including Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park. Eight million visitors are drawn to the Yorkshire Dales National Park a year and it's known for its dry-stone walls. The North York National Park is one of the UK's largest areas of heather moorland and visitors can take in the sights on the steam railway.

Coastal resorts to visit include the fishing port of Whitby, where much of the novel Dracula was set. Scarborough is a bigger place, and quite arguably the major holiday resort of the Yorkshire coast. Its two bays are linked with an impressive promenade. Cleethorpes and Bridlington are other popular resorts on the coast.

Food to try in the area doesn't just revolve around the famous Yorkshire pudding. There's also a selection of local cheeses, including Wensleydale and Yorkshire Blue, and liquorice has been made in Pontefract, Yorkshire for decades. Don't forget to wash your meals down with some Yorkshire Tea or one of the many locally brewed creamy-headed bitters.

If you like trying new foods you might be interesting in visiting York in September, when it hosts the UK's largest Festival of Food and Drink. Alternatively there's Yorkshire Day to look forward to, in August, when there's celebrations and a civic gathering of Mayors, Lord Mayors and Civic heads at a selected town each year.
