Belated Happy Yorkshire Day plus links

Jump to last reply

Well the 1st of August was Yorkshire Day and the white rose on the azzure field was flapping from many flag poles. I would have hit the date but massive rain showers and sunny days at >30C took out my internet. And who says climate change is a myth?

Anyway I have some friends visiting from the barren south so I had to plan a few visits, I felt I should send them the odd link before they come and I thought I should share them with Fodorites.

The main Yorkshire website is www.yorkshire.com

The marketeers have identified the top visits in this area in www.yorkshireattractions.org which include the brand new Hepworth Gallery at www.hepworthwakefield.org which is but a spit and a toss from the magnificent Yorkshire Sculpture Park at www.ysp.co.uk which is worth coming to Yorkshire for its own sake, but having two world class art centres so close together is wonderful. The visit to the YSP is free but the car park is very expensive so bring change.

Included in the top visits is www.royalarmouries.org if you liked the Tower of London you will love this place, they took all the bits that could not fit in the Tower and brought them here then they added strolling actors in full armour along with jousting, falconry etc, mainly for free. If your kids like tales of old they will love this place.

Then if you love gardens you must include www.Rhs.org.uk/harlowcarr near Harrogate and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/fountainsabbey North at Ripon
