Magnificent scenery in a countryside of unrivalled beauty and varied heritage await you. The Wolds are an outstanding and unspoilt holiday destination to which visitors return year after year.
From the gentle undulating Yorkshire Wolds to the flat Holderness plain, the countryside really is spectacular. Open roads lead to the charming and ancient market towns of Howden, Hedon, Pocklington, Driffield - 'Capital of the Wolds' - and the historic town of Beverley, appealing not only for its glorious Gothic Minster, but also for its lovingly preserved old streets and buildings.
The Wolds have countless villages, with ancient inns, ponds and fine churches, and for a glimpse of the grand lifestyle of landowners in times past there is Burton Agnes and Burton Constable, outstanding Elizabethan country houses, together with the Georgian Sledmere House and Sewerby Hall.

For days out, Fountains Abbey, the National Trust's top attraction, is a must. Newby Hall is famous for its beautiful gardens, while Ripley Castle near by has been home to the Ingilby family since the 1320s. Brimham Rocks and Stump Cross Caverns offer breathtaking examples of natural formations, and families will love Lightwater Valley Theme Park.
Blauw vierkantje - illu Haworth  -  VVV Haworth
On the edge of the Pennine Moors is the village of Haworth. Its steep Main Street, paved with stone setts and lined with historic inns, shops, galleries and cafes, leads down to one of Britain's best preserved steam railways.
More than a century ago, when the Reverend Patrick Brontė came to be a minister at Haworth Parish Church, the village was little more than a collection of stone-built weavers' cottages huddled together for protection from the harsh cold winds.
Yet within a few decades, a series of books written by three of Patrick's daughters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, caused this obscure Yorkshire village to become a major centre for literary pilgrimage.
Blauw vierkantje - illu Herriot Country

Leeds' reputation for shopping goes from strength to strength, and the designer names keep on coming - Vivienne Westwood, Gieves and Hawkes, Karen Millen, but it's not just expensive shopping. Elegant Victorian and Edwardian Arcades, small boutiques and speciality shops meet with modern malls and the top household names - all found in a pedestrianised city centre.
Away from the shops are an impressive range of attractions. The Royal Armouries is the first national museum to houses part of the Royal Collection from the Tower of London, in a £42 million home on the waterfront.

Geschiedenis van Yorkshire

Yorkshire has a fascinating and intriguing history, with stories of romance, violence, heroism and adversity spanning over 2000 years. Monuments of centuries shaped by the hands of Roman and Viking invaders and medieval monks have been preserved to recount such tales.
Yorkshire has been witness to a great deal of national history, including Roman invasions, Viking settlements, Saxon successes, Monarchy changing battles, the foundation of Methodism, great aristocracy and the industrial revolution.
Yorkshire has also been important to British Monarchs from the earliest times. Legend has it that King Arthur is buried in a crypt underneath Richmond Castle, Richard III grew up at Middleham Castle and Yorkshire has played a very strategic role in the history of England and for a succession of medieval Kings. Stamford Bridge in Yorkshire ended the long Viking threat to England and the region was pivotal during the War of the Roses and the Civil War, which tore the country apart.
