UK Holiday Destinations – Yorkshire

If you need destinations to plan to visit either as a tourist visiting England or as UK based traveller then there are certain parts of England that you simply must visit at least once in your lifetime and one of those has to be South Yorkshire.

Many people picture Yorkshire to be a hotch potch of industrialisation and, while that would be partially true many years ago, the Yorkshire of today is a different reality altogether as you will definitely experience when you come here.

The mining in the north and east of Yorkshire has long since quietened down and it is doubtful whether the mining activities will ever get even close to the heyday of there former levels. Sheffield is still world renowned for its exquisite silver canteens of cutlery.

Situated partially in the historic Peak District National Park a visit to South Yorkshire will give you unprecedented access to this, one of the world’s most famous and largest national parks, which has enough to keep even the most active of holiday makers busy for a lifetime.

The Peak District is an absolute dream for keen outdoor types and there is plenty to do to stretch your experiences as well as your pocket. From bird watching to mountain biking and climbing to caving there’s a lot to see and do, but for that ultimate experience , weather permitting you may even want to indulge in balloon trip or even a helicopter ride around the peaks.

The area is also home to a number of historic buildings you can visit whilst your out and about most of which are National heritage properties.

Brodsworth Hall and gardens, just to the north of Doncaster is a true survivor of the mid 1800’s and is said to be one of the finest complete examples of Victorian living and the most complete Victorian country houses ever to have survived in this country.

The favorite main city in the area of course has to be the city of Sheffield which considering its steel and industrial heritage is surprisingly one the greenest cities in Europe and is known as the city of trees as there are said to be in excess of two million, as well as a large number of parks and even areas of scientific interest.
