The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Yorkshire

It's more of a state of mind than a county these days, because Yorkshire officially ceased to exist in 1974, when the government in their wisdom divided God's Own County into various unitary authorities that to this day govern the north, south, east and west of the original county. It's perhaps testament to the identity of this unique part of Britain, though, that the idea of Yorkshire persists, not only in people's minds – most Yorkshire folk would still say they live in Yorkshire, first and foremost – but also in reality: Yorkshire still has its own cricket team, its own daily newspaper (The Yorkshire Post) and it's one of the most culturally distinct geographical regions in the UK. The county of North Yorkshire attracts the most visitors, home to not one but two national parks – the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors – as well as some of the highlights of the Yorkshire coast in Whitby, Scarborough and Robin Hood's Bay, and the magnificent medieval city of York. East Yorkshire – technically know as the East Riding of Yorkshire – is an undiscovered gem in our opinion, with some unspoilt countryside in the Yorkshire Wolds and an underrated county town in Beverley. West Yorkshire's highlight is probably the boho town of Hebden Bridge, though there are all sort of pockets of interest here, scattered among the urban centres of Leeds and Bradford, and, to the south, Sheffield
