Places to Visit & Events

The attraction of this part of Yorkshire lies not only in its beautiful countryside but also in its wealth of places to visit and range of recreational facilities.

There are 554 square miles of The North York Moors National Park to explore. Within an hour's drive is the Yorkshire coast at Scarborough and to the south is the historic city of York. To the west are the Yorkshire Dales and further north lies Teesdale.

Close to Ampleforth are world famous historic houses, abbeys, castles and craft workshops as well as opportunities for golf, riding and pony trekking, swimming, gliding, fishing and walking.

Some of the places to put on your "Where To Go" list will be:

Goathland Station

Details of these and many more places to visit can be obtained from the site Shop and at the Information Centres in nearby Helmsley and Sutton Bank.
