From mountain biking through the lush trees of Dalby Forest to wandering through the Shambles of York, North Yorkshire is a haven for those who like to spend their time in the open-air. With the weather outlook for the bank holiday too far ahead for an accurate prediction, we can’t promise you sunshine, but if you’re travelling to Yorkshire over Easter, make sure to pack a mac to make the most of the county’s outdoor activities and attractions!

Reason 2: There’s lots to do indoors, too

If the weather does look set to bring a halt to your outdoor pursuits, don’t fret as North Yorkshire offers plenty of things to see and do indoors too. Travelling with kids? Head to the National Railway Museum in York to learn the history of Britain’s railways. Or, experience the sights and sounds of World War Two with a visit to Eden Camp near Malton, a unique museum housed in an original WWII POW camp. Alternatively if you’re going it alone on a romantic break with your partner, discover one of North Yorkshire’s ancient castles- Hawes, Leyburn, Middleham and Reeth to name but a few.

Reason 3: Beaches, beaches, beaches
