Yorkshire - UK's Leading Holiday Destination

10 October 2012

From the unspoilt Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors countryside, to spectacular stretches of glorious white sandy beaches overlooked by rugged cliffs, Yorkshire rail holidays have much to offer the county's 216 million yearly visitors.

As a York-based company, we are thrilled that the county has been awarded the accolade of 'United Kingdom's Leading Holiday Destination' at the prestigious World Travel Awards - beating off competition from prestigious counties such as Cornwall, Devon and Cumbria.

While the untouched countryside is perfect for exploring, Yorkshire's appeal goes far beyond the natural beauty of 'god's own county'. Pretty villages with quaint market squares, charming towns with ancient cobbled streets and historic cities with dramatic castle ruins and elegant architecture are a delight to explore. And of course, cities like York and Leeds also offer fantastic shopping opportunities and memorable sightseeing experiences.

So should you be considering on experiencing the many attractions of Yorkshire then why not embark on one of our tours to this award-winning county? Our Yorkshire and the Lake District and Yorkshire & Northumberland  tours visit magnificent towns and cities such as York and Whitby, historic locations such as Castle Howard and Bolton Abbey. These Yorkshire rail holidays provide you with the best opportunity to see the untouched countryside on heritage railway journeys such as the North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway.

Whatever your passion, whether it is heritage, the arts, sport, food, city life or the great outdoors, Yorkshire has the experience just for you.
