A British Summer Holiday

A British Summer Holiday

Are you holidaying in England this summer? You want to escape the monotony of every day life but the thought of a dwindling pound is forcing you to re think going away to foreign climes and the news that this summer is going to be a scorcher has also spurred you on to stay in the country, why not visit Yorkshire?
Yorkshire is the largest county in Great Britain.  Offering visitors a range of activities to keep you entertained through out your break.  Something for everyone could be found.

If you fancy exhilaration then why not jump on a jet ski and take to the waters of Fosse Hill Lake in East Yorkshire or go surfing along the Yorkshire’s jigsaw coastline.  Maybe that’s a bit too much for the people who want to find peace and tranquillity, how about a nice walk along one of the canals and waterways or hire a canoe or canal boat and gently cruise merrily, stopping for a spot of lunch at a pub nearby.

Water based activities may not be your thing, why not take to the air, gliding across the York Moors and Dales. Why not learn to pilot a glider yourself? Still airborne, why not take in the sites of Yorkshire from a basket in the sky, ballooning above York Minster could be up your street.  Air raising activity might not feel you with confidence, if you are a couple who choose to come along without the children or just fancy getting away for a few days, there is an opportunity to hire out a classic car for the weekend, champagne and strawberries in the boot, countryside that stretches for miles and a sunny day!

Family fun isn’t hard to find either,  firstly why not visit Keighley and Worth railway made famous for it’s role in the Railway Children and take a 5 mile steam ride on the locomotive. Or swing through the trees at Dalby Forest, or visit the UK’s largest privately owned zoo which homes many exotic species.  There is also York Maze if you fancy loosing yourself for a few hours.  If the weather isn’t what you were expecting then stay indoors, there are many sheltered attractions too.  In Hull you can go back to the Jurassic age, visiting the Dinosaur Experience. Staying in Hull is the one of the world’s most spectacular aquariums which is home to over 40 sharks and 3500+ fish.  With so many attractions in and out all over Yorkshire you should find something to entertain the whole family.
