Let's make memories...

Using York as your base, get out and explore the natural beauty of the North York Moors National Park. Escape the city crowds and discover centuries of history and breath-taking landscapes right on the doorstep of York.

From dramatic coastlines to enchanting forests and striking heather moorland, you’ll find a relaxing haven worth discovering. Take a stroll in the quaint market towns and villages, including the picturesque Helmsley and Pickering which are home to fine North Yorkshire produce, art and independent shops.

Experience vintage train travel at its finest and revisit the age of steam as you embark on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, weaving through amazing scenic landscapes.

With some of the darkest skies in the UK, the North York Moors is an International Dark Sky Reserve, and the beautiful starry skies are a must see. Every February the Dark Skies Festival celebrates all their twinkling glory, where you can go on a stargazing nighttime trail or join one of the many astronomy talks.

Get lost amongst one of the many atmospheric ruins, abbeys and gardens. Castle Howard, Rievaulx Abbey and Helmsley Castle offer the chance to take a look into the past. If you’re looking for adventure, grab a bike and cycle the trails at Sutton Bank and Dalby Forest, where you’ll be wowed by some of the finest views in the country.

Take the time to sit back relax and extend your stay in the luxurious surroundings of the many cosy accommodations which are conveniently located across the National Park.

With too much to see in one day, extend your stay in York - go beyond the city walls and combine the city break with a rural escape to the North York Moors National Park.
