Things to do…
Whether you like a leisurely, outdoor lifestyle, or prefer the bustle of more urban areas, Gateforth Park is an ideal place to live. Relax within the tranquil surroundings of the site, or get out and about to the following places:
With a population of around 15,000, this historic town is 14 miles south of York on the River Ouse. Take a direct path into York along the Trans Pennine Trail cycleway, or visit the medieval Selby Abbey with its Norman and Gothic influences. There are also some great places to eat and drink, and lots of leisure and entertainment opportunities too.
Roman roots, a Viking past and a tumultuous history, much of which is still in evidence today, makes York a haven for history buffs. But it has so much more to offer, from quaint indies and high street names along its cobbled shopping streets, to a day at the races, a boat trip along the River Ouse, or some sustenance at one of its many quality restaurants and bars.
One of the Industrial Revolution’s major mill towns, Leeds has a rich history that’s reflected in a range of museums and attractions. But it’s also one of the North’s top shopping destinations, offering a mix of high street names and high end boutiques, including the impressive Trinity Centre shopping mall, which opened in 2013 following a £350m development.
North Yorkshire Moors
Including one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK, the North York Moors National Park is a stunning area of vibrant landscape, rich heritage and wonderful wildlife.
The rugged scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park has an abundance of limestone features including crags and caves, alongside heather moors, spectacular waterfalls and ancient woodland.
Whitby and the East Coast
Blue Flag beaches, the North York Moors Railway, and the occasional vampire are among Whitby’s many attractions. The Yorkshire coast offers amazing beaches, spectacular countryside, stunning views, outdoor adventures, and a wealth of places to eat, drink and be entertained.
