Here are our Dallas Limousines recommendations for the top five places to visit in stunning Yorkshire, a county of beautiful beaches, vast and open Moorland and the picturesque Yorkshire Dales.

1. The Yorkshire Dales

Take a trip through the rolling hills and mountains of The Yorkshire Dales, home to outstanding scenery, great castles, abbeys and a breathtakingly peaceful atmosphere.

Each of the Yorkshire Dales has a different character. The Southern Dales are less remote, yet still wildly beautiful. The Northern Dales provide wild heather moorland and valleys full of hay meadows, dry stone walls and barns. And in the West, the pretty villages and small towns each have their own charm.

The Dales make a great day out whatever the weather – you can find a countryside pub with a log fire in the depths of winter, visit Whitescar Cave, the longest show cave in England or the Wensleydale Cheese factory in Haws when it’s raining, or go to any of the spectacular waterfalls in the Dales including the famous Aysgarth Falls, a triple flight of falls that stretch out over a mile on the River Ure and include a nearby Visitors Centre.


2. Whitby

Home of the atmospheric Abbey that towers over winding cobbled streets, the harbour and sweeping coastline, Whitby is a pretty little seaside town famous for its fish and chips and boutique shops with numerous walks and a bi-annual Goth festival, for those so inclined to dress up. You can take a boat ride from the harbour and a very reasonable price and then visit some of the little museums and art galleries in the town including the impressive Captain Cook Memorial Museum.

Complete your trip with a ride down the coast to Robin Bay where former fishing cottages sit overlooking an unspoilt beach, ideal for anybody interested in unusual architecture and breathtaking scenery. While the afternoon away in a place where time has stood still and make the most of the stunning Yorkshire coastline. 


3. Rievaulx Abbey

Set in a tranquil valley of the North York Moors, discover the impressive ruins of one of England’s most powerful Cistercian monasteries. Truly stunning and one of the best English Heritage properties in the North of England by a long stretch, this makes the perfect day out.

Rievaulx was one of the first Cistercian abbeys to be founded in England in around 1130 and as it entered its Romantic period in the eighteenth century it’s picturesque ruins became a focus for poets, painters, and scholars.

You can visit the visitor centre and tearooms to complete your experience before riding back through the breathtaking York Moors, perhaps stopping at the market town of Hesmley for a spot of shopping or afternoon tea.


4. Day Out at the Races

York Racecourse attracts around 350,000 racegoers per year. Its award winning modern grandstands, characterful listed buildings, manicured lawns and home grown flowers set the scene for the best of racedays in Yorkshire. 

York Racecourse stages 17 racedays from May until October, offering a world class horseracing experience for visitors of all ages. Dress up in your finery and make it a real treat with a chauffeur driven limousine and bubbly to and from the races.

As well as watching the races you can enjoy locally sourced food, entertainment such as headline music concerts, family events and fashion which feature in all racedays throughout the season.


5. York

Home of the national railway Museum, York is a beautiful city with it’s quaint cobbled streets, boutique cafes and restaurants and the award winning Yorvik Centre.

We can start with a tour of the City, taking in the amazing sites of the City wall which dates back to Roman times, and then stop for a spot of shopping at one of the many independent shops including the famous Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas shop with it’s three floors of magical Christmas decorations that are a wonder to behold.

Of course no trip to York would be complete without a visit to York Minster, one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals dating back to the 7th Century. And the pop-up Shakespeare Rose Theatre enables you to experience a play in a reconstructed Elizabethan theatre for several weeks during the summer months of each year. What better way to arrive at the theatre that in your very own vintage car or limousine, perfect for a theatregoing couple or friends.

Finally, York is well known for its nightlife so if its clubbing, a live band or an open air concert, there is something for you to enjoy.
