Yorkshire is steeped in history reaching back millennia. From Roman ruins to grand country piles, there will be somewhere for you to marvel at.
If you’re a history buff visit the ruins of Unesco World Heritage Site Fountains Abbey (National Trust) or marvel at the intact Roman mosaics at Aldborough Roman Site (English Heritage).
See the White Horse at Kilburn, the most northerly hill figure in England. A trip here is easily combined with a walk around Rievaulx Abbey (English Heritage).
