English Tourism Week 2021 – Yorkshire
Escape the everyday and celebrate English Tourism Week in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Whether you are staying at a Devonshire Hotel or Boltholes or planning a day visit, Yorkshire has a lot to offer. From exploring the unspoilt beauty of the wild moors, enjoying a spa day with a spot of shopping or taking in the culture there is something for everyone!
For the foodies
Hop on the DalesBus 59 which takes the scenic route from Harrogate to Skipton and drops you right outside The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa and enjoy a luxurious lunch on the Laurent-Perrier Champagne & Seafood Terrace whilst soaking up the beautiful views of the Bolton Abbey Estate. If seafood isn't your thing then you can always dine at the Brasserie & Bar or head into Burnsall and try the Devonshire Fell new menus which include a tasting menu, afternoon tea and vegan alternatives.
For the shoppers and spa lovers
Outside of the main hub for shopping in Leeds City Centre and York you can find some gorgeous boutiques and designer shops in the Montpellier Quarter in Harrogate sitting alongside stylish independents. When you visit you will find Harrogate shopping also stretches out to surrounding traditional market towns with great little galleries tucked away in side streets and courtyards, just waiting to be discovered. In need of a day full of self-care and indulgence? Book into The Secret Spa at The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa and enjoy a spa day like no other in your own private hideaway complete with fantastic spa treatments, champagne and countryside views!
For the walkers and explorers
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to trying to choose a walk, so here is a few of our favourite wanders for you to choose from. The Ilkley Moors are perfect to experience on a clear sunny day and see the landscape of Yorkshire. Malham Cove and it's huge curving amphitheatre shaped cliff formation is a great adventure and was featured in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! The Bolton Abbey Estate has a walk for all ages with the Welly Walk and Valley of Desolation and Simon’s Seat where you can experienced the beautiful waterfalls. Don’t forget to pop by Cavendish Pavilion if you are visiting the estate for a scoop or two of Northern Bloc ice cream. Or if you are looking for something more challenging the three peaks climbing Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent takes around 12 hours to complete.
For the thrill-seekers Yorkshire has a number of centres, natural coastlines and scenic terrain where you can embrace your inner adrenaline junkie and try something new. From bungee jumping in Ripon, to coasteering on the Yorkshire coast, to rock climbing in some of the UK’s best limestone spots, take in Yorkshire’s splendid scenery from a whole new perspective. If you enjoy the water but would prefer something a little more relaxing take a trip down the River Nidd in Knaresborough in their popular red and green boats. Or perhaps you may want to catch up with friends and family and enjoy a picnic along the River Wharfe by the Burnsall Bridge!
The Yorkshire Dales Is rich in its heritage and culture with lots of to learn and discover, York Minister, Castle Howard, North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Bolton Abbey Estate ruins to name a few are a must to visit!
