Spectacular seaside and countryside.
With 40% of the county covered by National Parks, you would be right in expecting North Yorkshire to offer some impressive scenery. But the area offers a whole lot more than simply ‘get away from it all’ dales and moors. Alongside its wonderful countryside sit picturesque market towns and breathtaking coastal views.
Scarborough is a fascinating, historic seaside town with its own castle and glorious beaches, flanked by coastal cliffs that shelter pretty fishing villages. The elegant spa town of Harrogate features handsome historic buildings and verdant gardens, while the popular city of York offers all you could need to enjoy life in its maze of cobbled streets alongside the Gothic cathedral.
