Do The Malham Cove Waterfall Walk

There are so many beautiful waterfalls to see in the UK but the Malham Cove Waterfall is a sight to behold. It is a huge curving amphitheatre shaped cliff formation of limestone rock and the vertical face of the cliff is about 260 feet high. It overlooks the village of Malham and rightly attracts thousands of visitors every year. Why not take some time out to take a walk around and take in the views for yourself?

Literature Lover? Visit The Wuthering Heights Locations

Wuthering Heights is one of the most iconic tales that has ever been written but did you know it is possible to visit the Wuthering Heights locations? If you are a Brontë fan, then the Yorkshire Moors, Haworth and a few other areas close by are definitely worth checking out so you too can spend time where those famous characters once did.

Visit Temple Newsam House

Temple Newsam House is a stunning country estate in the city of Leeds. It has a working farm and a historic house to see and you could literally spend hours in there and the grounds taking in all that it has to offer. The house itself is very impressive in its stature and it is easy to see why visitors flock to it year in, year out.

Got Kids? Try The Forbidden Corner

A little gem that not everyone knows about, The Forbidden Corner in Leyburn is an exciting place for kids. With plenty of labyrinths, follies and underground lairs, your children will love spending time there, exploring and finding new ways in and out.

Whitby Abbey Is A Must See

If you only have time to visit a couple of locations, make sure Whitby Abbey is a must-see. The eerie ruins truly are a sight to behold and offer a great view of the town below. Whitby in itself is a town you simply have to explore with plenty to offer - especially with the fact that it inspired the story of Dracula! 

Head To Yorkshire Sculpture Park

This sculpture park holds an impressive collection of sculptures across its 500 acres and includes works by such famous sculptors as Barbara Hepworth. There are so many different pieces to see that you could easily spend a day there.

Take Time To Relax

After all that, why not take some time out of your day to relax? There are plenty of great spa days Yorkshire has to offer! Why not head to one and relax with a lovely massage, a swim in the pool or some time in the sauna. You can still take some time out even if you are exploring the county!
