North York Moors Guide, National Parks Guy

North York Moors National Park boasts 26 miles of coastline, on which history has literally been left. From small fishing villages and cobble stones to sandy beaches and cliff top paths. Since prehistoric times, jet has been mined and Ironstone has left these moors for the towns of Tyneside and Teesside. There is nature in abundance and if the coastline doesn’t attract you the vast open moorland will!

Then there are the skies at night, with a Dark Skies Festival taking place in February and plenty of opportunity to gaze at the universe around us. Find out what other activities are on in North Yorks Moors National Park here. For those interested in music and activities for the family, keep an eye out for Parkfest in July at The Moors National Park Centre, Danby.

From farm markets and Agricultural/country shows, the North York Moors has something for everyone. The outdoors will serve you perfectly well too. Opportunity to paddle your way about or take the bicycle for a little cycling will leave you refreshed and ready for more. I am certainly more in favour of the wildlife and here you get to watch whales pass by the shores (Whitby Whale Watching) and a chance to see Puffins at RSPB Bempton.
