North Yorkshire

4.1
North Yorkshire is one of England’s most rural areas, yet its biggest attraction is a city. York, the county’s largest town, is an ancient urban settlement dating back to before the Roman era. The city is known for containing some of the best-preserved historical buildings and structures in Europe, and it's one of the most visited cities in England, second only to London. Virtually untouched by the effects of the Industrial Revolution, which left other regions scarred by crumbling factories and run-down mills, this county is dotted by historic stately houses and the remains of formerly wealthy abbeys. Several breezy seaside resorts line the coastline, where you can trade in the sightseeing overload of London for a more relaxing holiday. For a truly English experience, make sure your itinerary includes a few tours of the county’s villages, renowned for their well-manicured gardens and thriving production of world-class cheeses. North Yorkshire is in Yorkshire. Plan your vacation with our United Kingdom online attractions planner and discover the best things to do in North Yorkshire.
