Yorkshire and The Humber, Visitor & Tourism Guide

York and moors, castles and coastline
The region's National Parks pull in over 15 million visitors a year. York is one of the UK's most popular cities. Home to spectacular coastal and inland scenery, ruined abbeys and dramatic castles, the Yorkshire and Humber region has UNESCO World Heritage Sites and brilliant museums, important country houses and great beaches. Throw in some vibrant cities and towns, some beautiful villages and seaside resorts and you understand the tens of millions of visits that are made here every year.

To the east and north of England. Shares a border with East Midlands to the south, North West England to the west and North East England to the north.

Yorkshire and the Humber consists of North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors
Home to several National Parks. The Yorkshire Dales are to the west of the county, the North York Moors to the east and taking in a chunk of the region's coastline. The Yorkshire Dales is home to Malham Cove and Gordale Scar, Aysgarth Waterfalls and Ribblehead Viaduct. The North York Moors covers exquisite places such as Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick Bay. On its coastal border are Whitby and Scarborough.

There are three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well. The Howardian Hills, North Pennines AONB and Nidderdale.

Cities and towns
York, with its Roman and Viking history, is phenomenally popular with tourists. Leeds, with its Royal Armouries and museums, is a city that must be visited, too. Then there's Whitby and Scarborough on the coast and Ripon and Beverley inland. If you're looking for exceptional villages, try Burnsall.

Culture and history
Saltaire and Fountains Abbey are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Castle Howard and Mount Grace Priory are must-see historical buildings. York Minster dominates its city, Whitby Abbey looks out across its town.

For culture, try Haworth on the Pennine moorland with its Bronte Museum or the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield. For history, try JORVIK Viking Centre and York Castle Museum.

Other exceptional attractions in the region include the National Railway Museum and Scarborough Sea Life and Marine Sanctuary.
