Things to do in the region
The first thing you’ll want to do in Yorkshire is get outdoors. Take a deep breath of the bracing Yorkshire air, then set off for adventures including hiring an off-road vehicle, visiting the North Yorkshire Moors’ steam railway, visiting Whitby’s ruined abbey, taking a trip to Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo in Pickering, or enjoying a day out at Scarborough’s Sea Life Aquarium.
Venture a bit further afield to York, and there’s loads to do on rainy days – or just when you fancy a break from the great outdoors. We suggest you climb up the tower of York Minster and head to Jorvik Viking Centre. Or, just walk around and soak up the stunning atmosphere of this photogenic city.
