The ancient fishing port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire with its superb coastline and the spectacular North York Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and of course the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps.
In 2014 Yorkshire hosted the world-famous Tour de France Grand Départ. After a royal send-off at Harewood House, the riders raced through Otley, Ilkley, Skipton, Kettlewell, Aysgarth, Hawes, Reeth, Leyburn, Ripon and the Stage One finishing point, Harrogate. Stage Two started in York as the yellow jersey departed for Sheffield, via Knaresborough, Silsden, Keighley, Haworth, Hebden Bridge, Elland, Huddersfield, and Holmfirth. The visit of this iconic cycling event has left a lasting impression on the villages and towns that were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the peloton, so much so that in May 2015 the first Tour de Yorkshire cycle race was held as a fitting legacy to what was a grand Grand Départ.
England's premier agricultural event, The Great Yorkshire Show, takes place each year in July and welcomes thousands of visitors. The show features a wide variety of animals from cows to horses, dogs to pigs, chickens to goats, and pigeons to sheep. It's not just about the furry and feathered participants, there are competitions to watch which show off the skills of us humans too, cheese making and shoeing are but a few to take a look at. Finish off your visit to The Great Yorkshire Show by browsing the food section of the showground for a tasty treat.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Yorkshire!
