About North Yorkshire
North Yorkshire is the largest county in England and includes the majority of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Its origins can be traced to Viking times circa AD875.
Its most Eastern boundary is the North Sea and many traditional fishing villages and towns can be found along this stretch. There is lots on offer in this region with many sporting events such as horse racing at York, football at Middlesbrough, motor cycle racing and cricket in Scarborough, and it has hosted the ever popular road cycle event the "Tour de Yorkshire" in many of its locations.
Inland, the North York Moors National Park gives walkers and explorers chance to get off the beaten track. With the National Trail the "Cleveland Way" winding its way through the county, and Wainwright's famous "Coast to Coast" perhaps you'd like to pull on those walking boots and start an adventure.
North Yorkshire offers a wealth of heritage with its Jurassic Coastline and gives fossil hunters a treasure trove to choose from. The quaint seaside villages such as Runswick Bay, Staithes, Sandsend, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay are all easy to visit over the course of a couple of days. With tearooms, gift shops, museums, beaches, castles, ghost walks, and of course fish and chip shops galore - the quintissential English seaside holiday can be found right here in Yorkshire.
We look forward to your visit.
