Top Reasons to Go
York Minster: The largest Gothic cathedral in England helps make York one of the country's most visited towns. The building's history is told in its crypt, brilliantly converted into a museum.
North York Moors: There's enough space in this national park for walkers to experience isolation amid the heather-covered hills that glow crimson and purple in late summer and early fall.
Rievaulx Abbey: Heading down the tiny lane that leads to the ruins of one of the great Cistercian abbeys only serves to make it all the more dramatic when its soaring arches appear out of the trees.
Coastal towns: Seafront Whitby inspired Bram Stoker to write Dracula. Robin Hood's Bay, a village set in a ravine, has an outstanding beach.
Haworth: Looking as if it were carved from stone, this picture-perfect hillside town in the dales is a lovely place to learn about the Brontë sisters.
