A little information about North Yorkshire
North Yorkshire is England's largest county and one of the most rural and beautiful. The area comprises of the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors, Vale of York and the coastal region. Each region has its own distinct natural beauty and charm. Around 40% of the county is covered by National Parks, and the largest cities / towns are York, Middlesbrough, Harrogate and Scarborough. The North York Moors is an area of a breathtakingly stunning beauty not to be missed. There are three main types of landscape here, as well as the coastal belt.
There are green areas of pasture land, purple and brown heather moorland and woodland. The cliffs and sandy bays of the coast offer an assortment of seashore habitats. The moors have not changed much in the past fifty years, and are often used as a backdrop to British television programmes and films such as Heartbeat and Harry Potter. The Yorkshire Dales are also home to outstanding scenery, a rich cultural heritage and a peaceful atmosphere.
The picturesque Dales have been carved by sparkling rivers, with unspoilt villages dotted throughout the stunning valleys. The Southern Dales are less remote, yet still wildly beautiful. The Northern Dales provide rugged scenery for walking and sightseeing. The Vale of York spreads out below as a patchwork of lush, fertile greenery. The countryside in the Vale is rolling rather than hilly and the City of York is situated here.
This beautiful city is rich in history, romantic ambience and fun activities. It is renowned for its exquisite architecture, quaint cobbled streets, York Castle and iconic York Minster. Visitors to York enjoy a treasure trove of museums, historic buildings, tours, shops, restaurants and bars.
