East Yorkshire: Puffins, Walkers & Sparkling Wine
With its wide open spaces and diverse wildlife, the East Yorkshire countryside is a must for nature lovers. The Cliffs at Bempton, for example, are among the tallest chalk cliffs in the country and are home to one of the largest colonies The gannet and the puffin in Europe.
The coastal footpath between Bempton, North Landing and Flamborough offers stunning views. The hiking trail landmark, the oldest still completed lighthouse building in Great Britain, is in the middle of a golf course and offers a sweeping view of the sea. At low tide, the beaches at the foot of the cliffs are inhabited by seals, who bask there undisturbed when not diving into the fish-rich North Sea.
East Yorkshire also boasts some of the most northern vineyards in England, thanks to the perfect sun and soil exposure. In Kelham, south of Flamborough, it has been operating for over a decade Sparkling wine made from Seyval grapes and Pinot Noir produced. at flamboro There is also a camping site including luxury accommodation in the middle of the wine growing region.
North Yorkshire: Smugglers, Dracula and Harry Potter
To the north are three other attractive sites: Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby and Grosmont in North Yorkshire. The first is a picturesque fishing village. Smugglers once unloaded large quantities of gin, liquor, tea, tobacco, and French lace from ships in Robin Hood’s Bay.
The remote location allowed them to bring Dutch gin to England for centuries. Nowadays, because of the scenic location and perhaps also because of not making architectural mistakes, tourism is the most important industry in Robin Hood’s Bay.
If you are not afraid of vampires, then drive a little north. Whitby is a place steeped in legends and blood — at least in fiction. That’s because Irish writer Bram Stoker lived in Whitby for several years of his life. Stoker was probably inspired by the ruins of a ghostly monastery from the seventh century, surrounded by tombstones and inhabited by dozens of fluttering bats.
Leave the vampires and Whitby behind Explorer James Cook Museum Visited, it is better to take the steam train Historic North Yorkshire Moors Railway, heading west to Grosmont. The railway between Whitby and Grosmont is one of the finest railways in England. It leads through a dreamy landscape where time seems to stand still.
Harry Potter fans will recognize at least one of the stations along the way: Goathland Station, south of Grosmont, corresponds to Hogsmeade Station in the first movie.
Derbyshire: Moore, the Revolution and the Banana
A little further south is the oldest national park in England, the Peak District. Around the famous rock formation Higger Tor, just outside of Sheffield, the landscape looks like a piece of North America brought to England. Instead of the manicured lawns typical of country, the ground here is covered with heather. Many good and family friendly signs walking space Make it possible to cross the swamp safely. Those looking for a little more excitement can try their hand at rocks at Standing Edge, one of the wildest places in England.
The Derwent River Valley is located on the southern edge of the Peak District. The landscape of English postcards is considered to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.
with the Chatsworth House One of the most luxurious mansions in England is located here, set in vast expanses with sweeping views. The country castle, whose construction began in the 16th century, is still the seat of the Cavendish family – the Dukes of Devonshire.
In Europe today, the name Cavendish is inevitably associated with the banana of the same name. This variety, which is particularly hardy, is said to have made it from a banana tree in greenhouses on properties to the Pacific states and the Canary Islands.
