Yorkshire is a part of the UK with much to offer. Whether you’re looking for a stroll through a stunning stretch of countryside, or a visit to a picturesque little town or historic city, you’re more-or-less sure to find it here.
Several attractions stand out as appealing to the average tourist. Let’s take a look at a few of the highlights!
With its impressive country estates and diverse landscape, Yorkshire has provided more than its share of filming locations over the years. There’s the Malham Cove, which has provided a backdrop for everything from Wuthering Heights to Harry Potter.
But if you’re a soap fan, there’s only one place to visit, and that’s the outdoor set of the Emmerdale Village. It’s in use during the week (when the actual filming takes place), but you’ll get the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour at the weekends. Be sure to book in advance online to avoid disappointment. For fans of the show, it’s a must!
Whatever hobby you’d like to get into, there’s a creative workshop on offer somewhere in the county. Of particular interest might be the Tinyjohn Terrarium workshop, whose host, Layla, moved up from London in 2020. There are events being put on across the county, and attendees will typically spend around two hours putting together their own terrarium. Or, if growing things isn’t your thing, why not indulge your artistic, or musical side? Yorkshire is a growth region when it comes to culture, and there are plenty of places to indulge your curiosity.
If you’re indulging in a staycation in the county, or you’d like something to do after coming home in the evening after a packed-out day, then you might consider a caravan holiday in Yorkshire. Find the right site and you’ll have no shortage of things to do in the evening, as well as the daytime.
Axe throwing is a bit of a modern trend, with locations cropping up all over the country. It’s easy to see why: it’s great fun, and it doesn’t take much to set up a throwing shop. The activity is brilliant for bringing friends together, and for indulging your savage nature without getting too violent. There are plenty of locations in Yorkshire – including indoor and outdoor ones. Pick one that’s convenient and get booking.
If you’d like an advantage over your friends and family before you get started, then you might consider a few top tips. They’re all to do with the shape of your body. You want one foot in front of the other, with a wide stance to stabilise you through the swing. Start with the axe behind your shoulder, wind up, and release.
