Locating you...

When the name Yorkshire is mentioned, you can’t help but instantly get a vision of a perfectly browned structure with crispy outer shell and fluffy inside, smothered in delicious gravy. Yes, the Yorkshire pudding is quite clearly foodie royalty, but the region itself has some equally renowned and equally tasty goods to also call its own. Favourite of TV duo Wallace & Gromit, deliciously crumbly Wensleydale cheese originates from Yorkshire, as do Pontefract cakes (liquorice) and spicy beverage ginger beer.

Yorkshire is ideal for those who love outdoorsy activities, with the Dales and the Moors offering scenic views and much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. The Dales also are the muse of the ITV television show Emmerdale which is now filmed at The Harewood Estate near Leeds, however inquisitive folk and superfans alike are able to tour the former site where filming took place as part of a dedicated attraction.

One thing that Yorkshire prides itself with is having the most breweries in the whole of the UK but it also has several lesser-known culinary specialities that are a must try when visiting. Parkin, a sweet ginger cake made with oatmeal and black treacle, makes a great sweet treat. Another regional specialty – pikelets, are akin to a thin crumpet and can be eaten with both sweet and savoury accompaniments.

In addition, there’s a whole host of museums and architecturally beautiful sites around the county to keep you occupied, including: York Minster cathedral, the National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and the Royal Armouries Museum to name just a few.
