Our Top 5 Destinations in Yorkshire

Tuesday, July 28, 2020

As part of our Yorkshire Day celebrations we thought we would share with you some of our favourite destinations for you to visit in this fabulous county of ours. Check out the full list below!

1. Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Get up close and personal with some of the most magnificent animals from around the globe. Yorkshire Wildlife Park, near Doncaster, is back open for business. The perfect place to visit with the whole family; spend the day walking through the safari animal areas and with a full programme of ranger talks and feeding times you’re sure to have a great time.

2. Whitby Beach

Take some time out to celebrate Yorkshire Day 2020 by relaxing on one of Whitby’s two fantastic beaches. There’s Tate Hill, a smaller sandy beach perfect for walking the dogs, or West Cliff, a larger beach with colourful beach huts, deckchairs and windbreakers for hire - perfect for a family day out. But there is so much more to Whitby than its wonderful beaches, you can complete the 199 steps up to Whitby Abbey or enjoy a spooktacular Dracula tour - find out more here.

3. Skipton Castle

At over 900 years old, Skipton Castle is one of the most complete and best preserved medieval castles in England - well worth a visit this Yorkshire Day. Skipton Castle is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

4. Malham Cove

Malham Cove is one of the best scenic walking routes in the whole of the country, nevermind North Yorkshire. The 230 foot high, gently curving cliff of white limestone is perfect for keen walkers and rock climbers - there is also an easy trail for first timers! But don’t just take our word for it, find out more about the cove and see some stunning photos here.

5. Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Yorkshire Sculpture Park is reopening on the 29th of July. This open-air gallery blends the works of great Yorkshire artists Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, with an ever-changing exhibition programme featuring some of Britain's best artistic talent.
