We are In Yorkshire

For more than 2000 years Yorkshire has dared to be different. Once a kingdom in its own right, England's biggest county has never lost that sense of being special. A "grandeur you don't get anywhere else", the power of its history and pride of its people make this a place where 'ordinary' simply won't do. Yorkshire is "most sublimely beautiful".

Ruined abbeys and castles, great houses and gardens are framed by high moors, wooded hills and lush farming country. Three National Parks: the Yorkshire Dales, the Peak District and the North York Moors protect more than 1000 square miles of matchless walking country.

Nothing beats the timeless appeal of the seaside. Golden beaches, majestic cliffs and Great British resorts. Scarborough and Bridlington bustle with life; Whitby is a historic port and Filey and Hornsea are traditional favourites and proud to stay that way.

Yorkshire's grandeur is "inspirational". The Brontes of Haworth. The late Poet Laureate Ted Hughes. Sculptor Henry Moore. Artist David Hockney. Composer Delius, superb choirs and the world best brass bands. All with their own vision.

Yorkshire vision changed the world. Captain Cook learned his skills at Whitby and sailed round the world in a flat bottomed Yorkshire collier boat. William Wilberforce set out from Hull to abolish slavery. The South Pennines was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and the might of our industry made Britain a world power. York, Roman stronghold and Viking capital, is one of Europe's greatest medieval cities; it is also stylish and fun.
