About Yorkshire

The largest county in the United Kingdom, Yorkshire is a beautiful scenic area of the country, with a wide variety of cultures, activities and cities to discover. The countryside areas of Yorkshire are considered to be some of the greenest in the whole of the United Kingdom, with countless numbers of tourists visiting every year to experience the rolling hills and sleepy little villages. Yorkshire's emblem is a white rose, and represents the English royal house of York - the county itself is sometimes referred to as 'God's own county'. Yorkshire has a number of fantastic breweries which are unique to the area, each making beer that has become associated with the county - the most well known association being bitter beer. Cities within Yorkshire include Sheffield and Leeds, both with burgeoning populations and exciting work opportunities. The smaller parts of Yorkshire, with the scenic areas of the Yorkshire Dales, for example, are home to beautiful little villages and towns, all of which have something unique and interesting about them. If you're interested in a trip to Yorkshire, holiday packages can be found online for a very reasonable price, with people renting out their summer homes when they're not using them, or their purpose built static caravans. Holiday cottages are available for rent, with the price of a Yorkshire cottage being very reasonable when split between a few couples or individuals. Yorkshire-themed memorabilia can also be found, with mugs, t-shirts, posters and postcards all available. If you're stuck for something to do when you visit, guide books can be purchased that will at least give you a good start.
