North Yorkshire Vacations
North Yorkshire is located 60 miles (97 kilometers) northeast of Manchester and about 200 miles (322 kilometers) north of London, the United Kingdom's capital.

Why don't you head out to the Shandy Hall and Byland Abbey in and around Thirsk, 5 miles (8 kilometers) away. Another option is to head to Ripon. It's about 8 miles (13 kilometers) from North Yorkshire and is home to the Newby Hall and Gardens and Blacksheep Brewery.
About 18 miles (29 kilometers) to the south of North Yorkshire is Harrogate, an important regional center and the home of Ripley Castle and Gardens, Valley Gardens and Pannal Golf Club. Log Heights, Studley Royal Park and Harlow Carr Gardens are other good spots to visit.
If the weather isn't ideal, don't panic, England is home to a range of theaters, art museums and art galleries, that'll keep you entertained. If you're looking for things to do that won't blow the budget, round up the family and head to England's popular farms, open-air exhibits and open-air museums.
A great way to discover the wild landscapes in the area around North Yorkshire is to sign up for a mountain biking or quad biking adventure. England offers plenty of laid-back activities. Set aside some time for cycling or picnicking and let your stress melt away.
A wise person once said: it is far better to see a place once than to hear about it a million times. With its stunning beauty England will exceed your expectations.
