North Yorkshire

Whether you’re drawn to North Yorkshire’s rugged coastline and splendid beaches, or its rolling green hills and moorlands, the most memorable wildlife encounters are guaranteed!


Famed for its verdant hillsides, wild moors and imposing coastal scenery North Yorkshire is England’s largest county - one that’s jam-packed with activities!

Explore the Yorkshire Dales, one of the region’s two national parks, and you’ll find gentle valleys dotted with picture-postcard villages and wildflower meadows. The perfect spot for hill walks… and maybe a pint or two! Roaring open fires accompany a bevy of local real ales in the park’s traditional pubs.

Elsewhere, the coast beckons, and it’s simply alive with natural beauty! The RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs is home to half a million nesting seabirds from April to August, including puffins, gannets and England’s biggest kittiwake colony. The wetlands at Saltholme reserve and the tidal reedbeds at Blacktoft Sands offer impressive wildlife spectacles too.

For a classic slice of British seaside entertainment visit Scarborough. Build sandcastles on the golden beach, explore the towering castle and absorb the magnificence of the coast on the traditional North Bay miniature railway - which has been running for 85 years!

In fact, the region is awash with history, with ancient York the dazzling jewel at its centre. The cathedral is particularly spellbinding, standing proudly above the leaning, timber-framed buildings in the winding streets below.

Wildlife-rich North Yorkshire boasts some of Britain’s hottest birdwatching spots, like Bempton Cliffs at Flamborough, where thousands of seabird’s dazzle in a world-renowned natural spectacle.
