One of the most striking features of the North York Moors is the dramatically contrasting landscape, from coastline and cliffs to sweeping valleys and lush forests. As a result, the area is a haven for wildlife with plenty of good spotting opportunities.
There are a number of ways in which to explore the lush valleys, pretty villages, wild moorland and rugged coastline. Choose to ride or cycle through the heather-clad moors and quiet lanes, or enjoy miles of wonderful walking from a gentle stroll to the Cleveland Way long distance path. For those who prefer the water, there is plenty of kayaking and canoeing to be done. Another popular way to experience the area that must be on the 'to-do' list is by steam engine. The wonderfully preserved North Yorkshire Moors Railway is a fascinating step back in time and provides the perfect way to hop between the idyllic villages whilst taking in the stunning scenery enroute.
When you're ready to rest after a day of exploration and sightseeing, you can choose from one of the many quaint country pubs or Yorkshire breweries, like the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham. Here you can take a guided tour and learn about the traditional brewing process.
A wonderfully tranquil destination to get away from the rat race, the North York Moors is a superb example of England at its best - both now and how it used to be. Find out more about things to do in the North York Moors.
