Towns and cities
From characterful history to contemporary attractions, Yorkshire’s lively towns and cities offer so much to keep all ages entertained. Walk along the cobbled streets of York; take in the breath-taking beauty of York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the Alps; explore the boutique shops, amazing eateries and hidden gems, or go on a river cruise and see the city from the water. The medieval market square of Thirsk offers all kinds of speciality stores that is the perfect escape from your traditional high street. Discover all the nooks and crannies offering tea shops, boutiques, and secret stores.
Yorkshire's stunning coastline is packed with equal parts charm as it is striking ruggedness. Spend a day at award winning fishing villages like Runswick Bay that seemingly hang from the nearby cliffs, stroll along picture perfect stretches of golden sand that you’ll find at Robin Hood’s Bay, or splash around at a bucket and spade family seaside area like Filey dotted with fish and chip shops. The fishing history, old world architecture, plus the fun and games you can have on the Yorkshire Coast make this a must visit region filled with variety and things to do for all ages.
