The largest of the 39 historic counties of England, Yorkshire's whimsical residents often call their home "God's Own Country." The sprawling county is divided up into four separate regions, each with its own cultural identity, thriving urban centers, and historic market towns that can fill a variety of holiday itineraries. The region’s countryside, featuring green valleys and gently rolling hills, has long attracted tourism from around the globe. Well connected to all other parts of the country by an extensive railway network, Yorkshire is a prime region for outdoor activities, with stunning scenery that includes three national parks. As part of your itinerary, explore the region’s numerous historical sites, but don’t miss meeting the colorful locals, known for being proud, industrious, and extremely opinionated about almost every subject under the sun.
