Yorkshire- the  White Rose county
Scarborough castle
UK Travel index

Yorkshire is the Anorak's first home so there will always be a special place in the heart for it.  The county is so big it was split into three Ridings (or thirds) with the county town of York at its centre.  The countryside ranges from rolling hills to dramatic cliffs to flat land in the Vale of York and the towns and cities are as varied as the people that live there. The soaring gothic beauty of York, the dramatic steel-souled Sheffield and the Georgian elegance of spa towns like Scarborough and Harrogate.
