Just minutes away you will discover the Yorkshire Dales and if you have never had the good fortune to visit the area before you will soon see why it is so popular, in fact it should be on everyone’s “bucket list”.

There are famous castles in abundance on our side of The Dales, such as Middleham and Richmond and many other places of interest including the ruins of the Cistercian Jervaulx Abbey.

A short drive towards the west coast and you will find yourself in the North Yorkshire Moors, a somewhat different experience, though equally spectacular. The former WWII prisoner of war camp “Eden Camp” is a modern Theme Museum and is just one of many things you may wish to experience.

You could spend a day at Scarborough, a journey of about 90 minutes that will take you around the edge of the moors, you will see amazing views of Scarborough from the battlements of the famous castle, which is an English Heritage site.

The great city of York is only about an hour away, with the famous Jorvik Viking Centre, if you fancy some exercise walk the ancient city walls, it is a great experience. In the summer months you will find hugely talented street performers entertaining the crowds, such as the amazing unicyclist, who juggles blindfold with swords while riding!
