The picturesque County of Yorkshire is among the largest in England and is divided into four parts - North, South, East and West Yorkshire.

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.
