The Region

The truly diverse landscape of Yorkshire offers more national parks than any other region in England. The North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales are stunning, and in Leeds you have a bustling and affordable city on their doorstep.

Nidderdale and the Howardian Hills are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while Spurn Point, Flamborough Head and the coastal North York Moors are designated Heritage Coast areas. You really are spoilt for choice if you’re looking for the great outdoors.
