Things to do and enjoy when staying in Yorkshire
Country cottages will offer you relaxation and time away from busy towns - yet within easy reach should you wish for a fix of culture. Perhaps a portion of the world’s most famous fish and chips might take your fancy, or maybe take the lift down into a real coal mine. Maybe a visit to see one of the world’s most famous steam trains, the Mallard, or perhaps a visit to the house lived in by Her Majesty the Queen’s cousin, Lord Harewood.
Nip to the shop in the real town where the hit TV series ‘Heartbeat’ is set, or drop down for a drink in ‘Emmerdale’s’ Woolpack pub, or head to “Last of the Summer Wine” or “All Creatures great and small” country. The world-famous Settle to Carlisle steam railway may take your fancy, or you can travel back in time to see the sights and smell the smells of Viking Britain.
Let youngsters’ imagination go wild at the scientific Magna, or Eureka, a museum strictly for children, or even see the world’s oceans at the Deep. Or ride a time car back to the world of the Vikings. Make scientific discoveries at Magna, or pop to see the permanent David Hockney exhibition in a former mill located in a town with no pubs. You’ll not want for something to do during your visit to Yorkshire.
