The largest county in the UK, Yorkshires history helped make it the county it is today, from the Danish Vikings invasion to the War of the Roses (Yorkshires emblem is the white rose of the English royal House of York), Yorkshire is a beautiful, historic and fascinating place to take your caravan or motorhome.
East Yorkshire is full of serene landscape, Bronze Age ruins and medieval towns – visit the cultural capital at Driffield or eat your way through the farmers markets in Weighton. Alternatively pitch up at a local caravan site and attempt to catch some British rays on the peaceful Blue Flag beach in Hornsea, wander the quaint promenade, towering, and just enjoy the quintessentially British seaside resort that is Hornsea.
Caravanners interested in history might enjoy some of the areas architecture at Burnby Hall, Burton Agnes Manor House, Burton Agnes Hall, Sewerby Hall, Skipsea Castle and the gun battery of Fort Paull.
Revisit the famous battle between an English army under King Harold Godwinson and an invading Norwegian force led by King Harold Hardrada of Norway at Stamford Bridge, which is said to have marked the end of the Viking era in Britain.
Explore time away from the caravan by getting some fresh air in the Yorkshire countryside, nicknamed ‘God’s Own Country’, experience the low chalk hills, the Yorkshire Wolds, surrounded by the low lying fertile plains of Holderness and the Vale of York with rambling moors, nature reserves, Wildlife trusts and National Heritage areas noted for their scenic views with rugged cliffs. Walkers give the Yorkshire Wolds Way a go – it is a long-distance footpath that takes a winding route through the Yorkshire Wolds to Filey and enjoy a much deserved cream tea.
