Here are a few good places to stay in Yorkshire if you are a fan of history…
Ripon – Although this is the third smallest city in England, there are plenty of local things to do in Ripon as you can see here www.localthingstodo.co.uk/locations/things-to-do-in-ripon/ The city is famed for its beautiful cathedral, but head out of the city to see a temple of a different kind – the Druids temple. Created in the 19th Century by the former sheriff of Yorkshire, this is a fun and interesting walk where you will find this stone structure that is loosely modelled on Stonehenge.
Whitby – A town that is better known for great fish and chips than ancient history, however, here you can find the fascinating Whitby Abbey. See these imposing ruins that have been part of the landscape for over 1000 years and take in the beautiful views across the bay and beyond whilst you are here.
York – Just North of York you will find the beautiful castle Howard. Known as one of Europe’s greatest palaces, this beautiful building has stood for hundreds of years, and you can see inside the stunning building as well as around the impressive grounds.
