Yorkshire is the quintessential Northern English travel destination. It is an exercise in contrasts, with urban and suburban sprawl, beautiful rolling hills, grassy plains, and national parks all within driving distance. The area is divided into four directional counties and sub-districts. First there is North Yorkshire, which includes such urban areas as York, Middlesbrough, Harrogate, and Scarborough, and rural areas such as the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Then there is South Yorkshire, with Sheffield as the most important city in this region, located just a short car ride from the Peak District National Park. West Yorkshire is one of the most densely-populated parts of England, where the major cities of Leeds and Bradford are located. Finally, there is the East Riding of Yorkshire, a largely rural plain with just one large city, Kingston upon Hull, which was named a recent `UK City of Culture`.
