Map of Yorkshire
Cities and Towns of Yorkshire

Its impressive history makes York an important tourist attraction. It is still encircled by its 13th and 14th-century city walls. You can find here important marks left by all remarkable European civilizations -- the Romans, the Saxons, the Vikings, the Normans -- among which the most important are the enclosing city walls and the largest European Gothic cathedral -- York Minster. The City Walls form a walkway on both sides of the River Ouse. The Monk Bar gate houses an exhibition tracing the life of 15th-century Plantagenet King Richard III.
Regions of England
The Midlands
The English Midlands are often overlooked but are alluring to travelers. The region is full of history; many cities were founded over two millennia ago, and are some of the oldest cities in England. The Midlands was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, helping to cement the British Empire`s global influence.
The Cotswolds
Explore quintessentially English villages of honey-colored stone; take in splendid, lively market towns, and visit some of the country`s greatest castles and country houses in the Cotswolds, a collection of small, rural villages with acclaimed reserves and some of the most breathtaking landscapes available in England.
East Anglia
The history of East Anglia (Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire) is vivid and rich; the oldest structures still standing in England, dating from the Bronze Age, are located in East Anglia. A number of large, ornate former monasteries-turned-cathedrals dot Cambridgeshire, from Peterborough to Fenland and the Isle of Ely.
Thames River Valley
The Thames River flows for 215 miles, making it the longest river in England. The area along the Thames has been at the epicenter of much of England`s military and economic history, and has served an important role in the growth of England since the time of the Romans, evidenced from cities such as London, Oxford, and Windsor.
South East England
South East England is a large and geographically diverse region, much of which sits in the Thames River Valley, and here you can experience such sights as the New Forest, the Chiltern Hills, and the White Cliffs of Dover, in addition to Blenheim Palace, Windsor Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, and the list goes on.
South West England
South West England is filled with exciting sights such as Stonehenge, the world-famous prehistoric stone circle; the Roman-era hot springs of Bath; the coasts of Dorset and east Devon; and the tin mines that dot the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. All of these popular attractions are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Experiences & Adventures

England is a country which combines geographic beauty, architectural splendor, and rich history to create a tourist experience which will stay with you for the rest of your life. Together, the three historic cities of Bath, Oxford, and Cambridge are the true Charms of England, and must be experienced to be truly appreciated.

Seaside resorts were the forerunners to today`s British tourism industry, and they still welcome millions of tourists annually after over 150 years in existence. Arguably the most popular of the seaside resorts in England are Brighton, Bournemouth, and Blackpool. Llandudno, a short train ride away in Wales, is also very popular.

The British Isles has a rich history of literary excellence. The history, fantasy, politics, romance, and tradition of the isles have been brought to life and evaluated by authors who span centuries. The canon of literature produced by authors from the British Isles illuminates historical narratives and literary innovations.
More to Explore in Northern England
North West England
North West England is the second-largest urban area in England, which includes Manchester, the UK`s third-largest city; Liverpool, on the River Mersey, known for its seafaring traditions and The Beatles; Blackpool, one of the most popular seaside resorts in England; and Chester, perhaps the best-preserved walled city in Britain.
Lake District
The Lake District, located in Cumbria in England`s northwest, is a mountainous region famous for its forests, waterfalls, its literary traditions, and of course its lakes. The Lake District National Park, spread out across 911 square miles, is the United Kingdom`s most-visited national park, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
North East England
Beautiful North East England consists of such cities such as Durham, which boasts a 1,000-year-old old town; Newcastle-upon-Tyne, developed around an old Roman settlement and once one of the most important shipbuilding centers in the world; and Sunderland, which grew around the 7th-century Monkwearmouth-Jarrow Abbey.

England and Beyond
YORKSHIRE

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`.
