My Road Trip Route Around Yorkshire

I started off in Whitby, home of Whitby Abbey, the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula novel. And the point that James Cook sailed off into the horizon to explore the world.

My time on Yorkshire’s coastline took me to Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes Harbour, full of ghost, smuggler and pirate stories and charming cobbled streets lined with cottages leading all the way to the sea.

Inland I headed to the Yorkshire Moors and discovered just why so many people visit them each year – the views are stunning, and the small villages scattered throughout them are quintessentially English.

The next stop was the Howardian Hills home to Castle Howard, the historic mansion house featured in films including Bridgerton and Chariots of Fire. A sensational part of Yorkshire full of walks, farm shops, and not forgetting Yorkshire Lavender.

Back in the hustle and bustle of the city, we discovered what to do in York in one day, which included the touristy things like visiting York Minster, joining a ghost tour, and checking out “The Shambles” to finding hidden treasures such as the York Musem Gardens and the Merchant Adventurers Hall.

To finish our Yorkshire road trip, we headed to Harrogate, the Victorian Spa town that is a favourite for most visitors to this part of the country. Before we knew it our time in Yorkshire was at an end we we headed home via Haworth in the Yorkshire Dales, home of the Bronte sisters, vowing to return to Yorkshire in the future.
