Unique Gifts and Days Out in North YorkshireLocated primarily within the region of Yorkshire and Humber, and covering an area of over 8,600 square miles, North Yorkshire is the largest county in England, and home to a whole host of varying landscapes, county towns and villages, and vibrant metropolitan cities. Whether you are looking for a weekend of city sightseeing, a romantic rural retreat, or a day out on the coast, the list of things to see and do in North Yorkshire is almost limitless.
North Yorkshire is best-known and loved for its huge expanse of countryside, and its rugged landscapes, and with 40% of the county being covered by National Parks, it is not hard to see why!...
The Yorkshire Dales (repeatedly voted as Britain’s favourite National Park of the Year) can be wild and turbulent or delicate and tranquil, all in one day, and with a span of over 841 square miles, every day here is different. Hikers and explorers can conquer the 24 mile Three Peak Walk, reaching the summits of Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent, and Whernside hills, whilst adventurers can venture underground to explore the limestone wonders of Victoria, Alum Pot, or White Scar Caves. Those looking for a more relaxing day in the countryside can ramble along public footpaths, stopping off for tea and cake at some of England’s prettiest country towns and villages.
The North York Moors in the East of the county tell a very similar story, yet have a distinct character of their own. Here you’ll have the chance to get back to nature and surround yourself with untamed wildlife – whether you choose to hire a bike for a world-class cycle along a forest track or a disused railway line, go for a family walk through the rock crags of Wainstones, or take in the breath-taking views of the coastline, the North York Moors have a fantastic day out for all. Tourists looking to capture photos of famous landmarks will be spoilt for choice with attractions such as Rievaulx Abbey, the heritage North Yorkshire Moors Railway and the iconic Kilburn White Horse…so bring wherever you’re headed, be sure to take a camera!
Those looking for a truly unique experience during their North Yorkshire stay can explore the grounds of the famous Ripley Castle with a Segway Tour, Rock Climbing experience, or High Ropes challenge, whilst petrol heads can take to the tarmac for an adrenaline-fuelled Supercar Driving Day at Tockwith.
