If you are doing what many people are this year and looking for a break away from home but still within the UK why not head to Yorkshire? There is so much in Yorkshire for all the family – from things to do in Ripon when the British weather isn’t at it s best, to sweeping coastlines and beautiful beaches when it is as well as being surrounded by stunning countryside, Yorkshire really does have it all.
Here are the top picks of things to do on your staycation in Yorkshire…
If you are visiting Ripon, then a visit to its beautiful cathedral is a must. This ancient cathedral is full of history and has the oldest cathedral crypt in the UK. The cathedral itself is over 1,300 years old and stands proudly in Ripon to spread hope to visitors and locals alike.
The beaches of Yorkshire are truly spectacular and one of the best places to enjoy a proper dinner of fish and chips! Runswick bay is great for surfers and those who enjoy the thrill of crashing waves and of course Whitby the popular as ever seaside town has a sandy bay perfect for little ones. For a huge swathe of sand head to Filey beach to enjoy the fresh air and even a pony trek!
Walking in Yorkshire is something that will take your breath away. There is so much to explore in the beautiful countryside – walk Ribblehead and see the huge viaduct, walk from Middleham along the river Ure and walk to Mallerstang to see castle ruins from a time long ago.« Back
