North Yorkshire is a non-metropolitan county in England containing two National Parks, making it nature enthusiast’s dreamland. It’s bustling with historical towns dating further back than the forming of North Yorkshire’s boundary itself, which seems fitting for the UK’s largest county.
There’s the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you can explore unique cave formations in Malham Cove or stare in wonder at the Ingleton Waterfalls, following its nature trail and witnessing the almighty splash where the River Twiss meets the River Doe.
East of the Dales is Harrogate, one of the biggest towns in North Yorkshire. It’s best known as a historic spa town, with luxurious Turkish Baths that have been restored into a tourist-friendly, Moor-inspired resort. Apart from unwinding in the baths, though, the Royal Pump Room Museum in Montpellier Quarter delve into the cultural significance of the town’s natural mineral springs.
You can’t visit Yorkshire without visiting York. Founded by the Romans, the architecture is a sight to see. York Minster is a large, gothic cathedral that positively looms over York, while the fortified York Castle has a popular walking route, with guests meandering through its medieval walls and roaming the halls of York Castle Museum.
Then there are the North Yorkshire Moors, which are unmissable and teeming with quaint, historic villages, wooded river valleys, trickling streams and awe inspiring religious ruins. A lot of the time in this often-misty, historically and culturally dense county, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported into an Emily Brontë novel.
