Places of interest

Rich in scenery, history and wildlife, this area of North Yorkshire, adjacent to the North York Moors National Park is well loved by walkers, nature lovers, cyclists and artists alike, providing a well earned break for those in search of stimulation and relaxation.

No visit to the North Yorkshire Moors would be complete without a visit to the famous Castle Howard, featured in Brideshead Revisited.

In this area you can visit many museums, castles, abbeys, a bird sanctuary and the glorious heritage coast. There are markets to be visited as well as our famous agricultural shows and village fetes. The North Yorkshire Moors themselves are the host to the world famous North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, a must for any visitor.

The energetic visitor can enjoy walking, swimming, cycling, fishing as well as a game of golf. For the less energetic ambling along our un-crowded roads on the moors to take in the breathtaking scenery is a pleasurable pass time. Take care! You might just meet the bobby on his bicycle from the famous “Heartbeat” TV Series. In order to truly enjoy the many picnic sites around do not forget our packed lunches.

Journey to York and experience the varied richness of this historic city. The varied attractions include the award winning Jorvik Centre, the famous York Minster and the Castle Museum.

Whitby is situated to the north east of Pickering and hosts some wonderful attractions. The magnificent Abbey dominates the southern cliff top, overlooking the harbour. Captain Cook set sail from Whitby on the Endeavour and there is a small museum in Pannet Park.
