Beautiful places to visit in Yorkshire

You may not realise it but the UK is home to many beautiful places. With travel restrictions somewhat in the past, all Brits now have the freedom to travel to wherever they want to on their vacations, be that a road trip through the USA or a tropical Caribbean island.  

For much of the British public, however, they will still be packing their bags but not going abroad. The lockdowns and restrictions on flying over the last few years have meant that people have been finding new places to go on holiday in Britain. Known as staycations, these saw a 500 percent increase in search volume in 2020 which highlights their popularity at the time.  

People continue to opt for these holidays due to their cheaper prices and reduced travel time and we’re here today to tell you why these places in Yorkshire are a must for trips away with your friends and family. Read on to find out the must-visit places in Yorkshire: 


York is a beautiful place located in North Yorkshire. It possesses a rich history to explore and with that comes interesting architecture to lay your eyes on.

Yorkshire Dales  

A place with a heritage like no other, this region in Yorkshire is the perfect spot for those that love to explore the outdoors. With endless trails to hike up and down, you could spend a fortnight here without getting bored.  

The Yorkshire Dales is also home to many charming villages filled with great pubs and shops to enjoy as you take time out from nature.
