Region Information

Yorkshire and the Humber comprises most of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.
Yorkshire, England’s largest county, comprises four main areas; the City of York, North Yorkshire, West Riding and East Riding. The City of York is situated at the junction of the Ridings, in the Vale of York, which is the widest plain in England.

Yorkshire’s breathtaking countryside has inspired many novels such as, Emily Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ and James Herriot’s ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ and the dramatic scenery has also provided the backdrop for countless films.

Visit Yorkshire and you too will be impressed by the stunning scenery, cities steeped in industrial heritage, and charming market towns to explore. Delightful places to visit in Yorkshire include Beverley, a thriving medieval market town, and historic York where you can admire gothic York Minster cathedral. Looking for a challenge? Fun things to do in Yorkshire include uphill climbs across the Yorkshire Dales, where you’ll be rewarded by jaw-dropping views, or try your hand at surfing in beach towns like Scarborough. Or simply take a leisurely stroll around cosmopolitan Leeds for museums, galleries and excellent shopping in abundance.

North Yorkshire, stretches from the Pennines in the west, to the north east coast, covering nearly 3500 square miles. Known by the locals as ‘God’s own county’, it is celebrated for it’s varied landscape, which is host to two national parks. The North York Moors, with its spectacular heritage coastline, is a joy to behold. The Yorkshire Dales with its high peaks, low valleys, flowing rivers and patchwork fields ribboned with dry stone walling, is simply outstanding.
