The English have a saying: `It`s grim up north`. However, for foreign visitors who wish to visit Northern England, they will find that nothing could be further from the truth. Urban sprawl meets rolling hills and untouched countryside in the breathtaking Yorkshire region, home to such important cities as York, Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, and Kingston upon Hull, as well as the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. North West England is one of the most industrialized areas of England and is now a contrast of history and tradition living side by side with innovation and progress. It is home to such important cities as Manchester, the third-largest in the country; Liverpool, an important seaport well-known for the rock-pop group The Beatles; Chester, with its well-preserved walled old town; and Blackpool, a postcard-perfect seaside resort on the Irish Sea coast. It also includes the picturesque Lake District in Cumbria. North East England is home to some of the most important Roman archaeological sites in Britain, and such Medieval-era points of interest as Whitby Abbey and Alnwick Castle. Major cities in the North East include Durham, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and Sunderland.
