Have a brilliant Yorkshire

Yorkshire features over 800 attractions, from World Heritage Sites to mining museums, ruined castles and abbeys, to hands on museums. You’ll find serene gardens and unique breweries, thrilling rides and industrial heritage. From attractions and museums to sports and galleries, from the history-lover to the inquisitive child, there’s something for everyone.

And with Yorkshire’s Coast being one of the UK’s most popular seaside destinations, there’s nowhere better to go for a good old British holiday. The scenic coastline boasts a number of immaculate Blue Flag beaches. You can’t beat the feeling of sand between your toes, the smell and breeze of the fresh sea air running through your hair and of course the ample selection of delicious fish and chips on offer, not to mention the scrumptious ice cream for after. And I’m sure you will agree that there’s something about the seaside that puts a smile on even the grumpiest of faces, and with each area along Yorkshires stunning coastline holding its own unique charm, there’s a special place for everyone.

For traditional family fun Scarborough has it all, take a ride on a donkey, hire a row boat and visit Scarborough’s Sea life and Marine Sanctuary. But if you prefer a gentler pace of life, Filey might be more your cup of tea, a traditional English seaside resort with a lovely sandy beach and historic promenade. For little ones……Whitby fits the bill, a lovely pleasant beach perfect for rock pooling. And for something a little bit more unique, Hornsea holds the key, a peaceful place with a charming promenade and towering Victorian folly, home to Yorkshire’s largest freshwater lake boasting over 250 species of birds with plenty of opportunities for sailing, fishing and feeding the ducks and swans. And for the romantics out there, look no further than Withernsea, a small sandy pebbly beach home to a fairy tale haven.

It doesn’t stop there either, there’s more! Forget the deckchairs and dodgems as Robin Hood’s Bay is Yorkshires coastline at its most raw and elemental; expect brooding cliffs, tumbling cottages and miles of breathtaking scenery. For a place lost in yorkshire 3time, you have Staithes; once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast, now a tranquil delight of towering cliffs, quaint, higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets. The prize for Yorkshire Coast’s prettiest destination goes to Runswick Bay for its sweeping and sheltered bay along with a collection of charming red roofed cottages and tiny pedestrian lanes. Home to a stretch of rugged white cliffs punctuated by one small village, Flamborough Head is a wild and windswept stretch of land, teeming with bird life and gorgeous scenery. And another equally brilliant seaside resort called Saltburn comes complete with a fantastic pier, good fish & chips and a wide variety of activities including the local theatre, riding the funicular railway and exploring Teddy’s Nook. Bridlington Old Town is a charming pocket of Yorkshire full of fascinating architecture and cultural history with new, modern shops and stylish galleries. The last town found at the very top right hand corner of Yorkshire is a place called Redcar, a popular place rich in heritage.

Yorkshire isn’t all about fish&chips, but it’s a large chunk of Yorkshire, one that contributes to that great British Holiday experience for many of us.  Yorkshire is a historic county of Northern England and the largest in the United Kingdom. It’s full of fascinating architecture with plenty of historical stories and beautiful sights, home to two national parks. The first being The Yorkshire Dales National Park which is a special place of natural beauty and diversity, a place of grandeur, a place of tranquillity and solitude, a place to be refreshed and invigorated, and a place to enjoy the challenges of the hills. It is also one of the most important areas of the United Kingdom for its rich and diverse wildlife heritage and has the largest area of nationally and internationally important habitats of any National Park. The other national park is The North York Moors which is a truly beautiful landscape of stunning moorland, spectacular coast, and ancient woodland and historic sites.

Looking to get away?

When it comes to summer holidays, we all tend to go straight for the Spain or Italy holiday destinations. Although there are lots of amazing places to visit abroad, we always forget about all the wonderful places we have right here in the UK.
You don’t need to look far or hard to find a truly enjoyable holiday here in the UK. One that everyone will enjoy and one that’s closer than you might think.

We have hours of glorious sunshine here and plenty of exciting beeches brimming with character shouting out to be explored, and what’s more, Keep Britain Tidy has announced that 70 of England’s beaches have been awarded the internationally recognised Blue Flag this year. So, why go abroad when you have the sun and sea here? And if you want something quieter and less touristy, the UK’s patchwork quilt of countryside is amongst the most beautiful to be found anywhere on the planet. Picturesque villages served by quaint olde-world pubs are also here to be discovered and loved.
