North York Moors

The North York Moors, sometimes referred to as North Yorkshire Moors is a National Park to the east of North Yorkshire. It is a large expanse of heather moorland with rolling hills. The east of the Moors is bounded by the Yorkshire coast while the West boundary is the Cleveland and Hambleton Hills.

Although sparsely populated, there are a number of towns in close proximity to the moors which include Helmsley, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside, Guisborough, Stokesley, Northallerton and Whitby

The Moors are very popular with walkers and there are named walks taking set routes. These include the Cleveland Way, which circumnavigates the moors, taking in a section of the coast line and the Lyke Wake Walk whic is a North to South route.

If that all sounds too energetic, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is there to help. It was originally planned by George Stephenson and opened in 1836 as the Whitby and Pickering Railway linking trade routes with Whiby. It was reopened in 1973 as the North York Moors Railway after being closed in 1965. It offers a fabulous day out on a steam train and there are a number of destinations where you can embark.
