Yorkshire Voted Best UK Holiday Destination

Find out why Yorkshire has been voted the UK's best holiday destination!

Yorkshire, a county cluttered with historical towns, exquisite view and welcoming locals and wildlife has fended off competition from prestigious counties such as Cornwall, Devon and Cumbria which host arguably equally attractive sights and beautiful locations to be awarded the accolade of best UK holiday destination in the 19th World Travel Awards.

Voted for by travel agents around the world, Yorkshire achieved this award due to the fact it receives a huge 216 million visitors every year from both international and British tourists wanting to visit historical towns such as York and Whitby, as well as two glorious national parks in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and of course, the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Whitby, located on the coastal border of the North Yorkshire Moors, features some of the most exciting historical resources, including a range of Captain Cook museums and landmarks for those who are particular sailing or history enthusiasts. Whitby also features a range of exquisite restaurants, of course offering the world famous fish and chips along with a range of other culinary delights to tantalise your taste buds.

This compact market town also offers a range of activities for children too. With a range of boat trips available, both for fishing ventures or simply just a ride around the town to appreciate it in its glory from distance.

With a range of stunning views, including the traditional harbour and the inspirational abbey, Whitby offers something for every kind of tourist, with the perfect combination of beaches, historical landmarks and local attractions such as the Dracula trail and Captain Cook museum.

Although the summer may be over, Whitby still has a lot to offer for the winter tourist looking for a more affordable get away than venturing overseas. With such a wide range of cottages and apartments available, self catering in Whitby is the best option for accommodation, allowing you to experience the local cuisine and scenery for yourself whilst enjoying the privacy of your very own peaceful haven.
