Principal Towns: York Harrogate Thirsk Skipton

North Yorkshire is England's largest county with an area of more than 800,000 hectares to explore. The county is fascinating, and no matter what your interest or time to spare, offers a huge range of activities and attractions.

The county of North Yorkshire stretches across Northern England from its spectacular coastline in the East, across Moors and fertile valleys to the Dales in the West, and attracts millions of tourists who flock to see its traditional market towns, beautiful countryside and historic sites.

The county's greatest asset is its wonderful scenery, whether it is the NorthYork Moors , to be enjoyed on foot, by car or steam railway or the beauty and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales . The more adventurous can explore the demanding terrain of remote uplands, spectacular limestone and gritstone crags and the secrets of the limestone potholes or the drama of its coastline with narrow streeted villages clinging to its stunning cliffs.

Both the Dales and the Moors have been brought into people's living rooms across the world by the success of television series such as the stories of James Herriot and the Heartbeat adventures.

Along the 45 miles of coastline there is more than the traditional resorts of Scarborough and Filey and Whitby with its Dracula and Captain Cook connections and spectacular ruined abbey, the area also has literary and cultural attractions such as the Stephen Joseph Theatre. The ruins of monasteries scatter the county at places such as Rievaulx, Jervaulx and Fountains Abbey - a World Heritage site.

The Harrogate District is a mixture of beautiful landscapes, flourishing towns, dales villages and heritage sites. The town of Harrogate , has a rich spa history, combined with parks, gardens and floral displays.

Close by is the medieval market town of Knaresborough famous for its 14th Century ruined castle, its maze of narrow streets and Mother Shiptons Cave. From Pateley Bridge to Masham, the towns and villages of Nidderdale provide the perfect base to explore the magnificent surrounding countryside.

There are also spectacular memories of bygone days in North Yorkshire with magnificent structures which have stood for centuries. Selby Abbey and Ripon Cathedral are two of the finest examples of English architecture to be found anywhere in the world.

North Yorkshire is indeed a land of diversity.
