Yorkshire Travel Guide

As a young child, I lived in Yorkshire before moving away to the Channel Islands when I was eight. Many years later, Yorkshire called me back, and I’ve lived in glorious Harrogate in North Yorkshire for more than ten years 🙂

Yorkshire is vast and surprising, with friendly people, breathtaking landscapes, incredible historical sites and fabulous food. There’s so much to see and do

My Yorkshire travel guide is filled with Yorkshire travel posts to help you plan your Yorkshire visit:

    Yorkshire Travel Guide: How To Get Around Yorkshire

    Getting to Yorkshire: Yorkshire is served by Leeds Bradford Airport with flights to multiple European destinations. The nearest international airports are Manchester and Edinburgh.

    The best way to travel around Yorkshire is by train; however, many small rural villages and most beautiful places are not served by public transport, and you may need to drive or hire a taxi/Uber to visit these.

    Best Time To Visit Yorkshire

    Yorkshire is typically warm, and it often rains in the summer. It can be cold in the winter, so the best time to visit Yorkshire is between April and October.

    Springtime is beautiful, as the Yorkshire Dales are dotted with baby lambs, spring flowers burst forth, and trees are heavy with blossom.

    Yorkshire Travel Guide: Best Booking Resources

    Over the years, I’ve tried lots of different travel companies and resources. Here are the ones that have consistently delivered excellent service and great prices. I trust and use all of these personally – so I recommend them.

    • Booking.com This is my go-to site when comparing accommodation prices. It usually has the best prices and is easy to find and book accommodation. Cancellation is free, too.
    • Get Your Guide: I love and rely on Get Your Guide for day trips – there are more than 30,000 activities in 7500 destinations, so there are plenty of choices.
