About North Yorkshire

The picturesque County of Yorkshire is among the largest in England and is divided into four parts - North, South, East and West Yorkshire. The city of York, famed for its historic Roman Walls and its charming medieval streets is home to the famous 'York Minster Cathedral', a fine example of medieval architecture dating back to the Roman Era which boasts one of the finest collections of stained glass in existence. The Yorkshire Dales is an area of outstanding beauty, with a large part being designated as one of England and Wales' protected national parks. Local attractions include 'Bolton Castle', a magnificent medieval fortress built in 1399 by Richard le Scrope. 'North Yorkshire Moors Railway', a preserved steam railway running 18 miles through the picturesque North Yorkshire Moors.
