A historic county in Northern England, today, Yorkshire is known for its two national parks, market towns, fishing villages, rugged landscapes and traditional sandy beach resorts. Whether you're heading away with family, friends, a partner or looking for some me-time, you'll be spoilt for choice here.
From cities like Leeds and York, and towns like Harrogate and Wetherby, whatever you're looking for, you'll find it. Get out in the great outdoors in the Yorkshire Dales National Park or set up a sunbathing spot on the golden sands at Scarborough. Either way, you won't be disappointed by the holiday accommodation either.

Yorkshire is also great for...
Did you know that Yorkshire is home to not one, but two Certified IDA International Dark Sky Reserves? The North York Moors National Park is a stunning attraction during the day, but at night, as many as 2,000 stars light up the sky. Lucky stargazers may even catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights if the conditions are right!
The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a great spot from which to see the Milky Way, as well as the International Space Station when it's overhead.
They have both made it into our top 10 list of stargazing locations this winter. Discover more about the entire list, using our interactive stargazing map.
