Adventure Holiday Destinations – Yorkshire And The Peaks Bookmark and Share

While being one of the smaller countries in Europe, England has a huge amount of diversity that any traveller to its shores will surely testify. Whilst not the largest of countries, exactly where to base your stay often raises a bit of a dilemma for many but the Yorkshire area has much to offer even the most discerning visitor.

Most people consider Yorkshire to be an industrial county full of factories and jammed full of houses for the workers but nothing could be further from the truth and South Yorkshire is vastly different to what you can imagine.

The mining in the north and east of Yorkshire has long since quietened down and it is doubtful whether the mining activities will ever get even close to the heyday of there former levels. Sheffield is still world renowned for its exquisite silver canteens of cutlery.

Any visit to the South Yorkshire area would not be complete with a trip to the Peak District national park one of the most visited national parks in the whole world. The Peak District offers outstanding natural beauty and enough activities to keep most people very busy.

The national park caters for probably every possible taste and is very popular with the international climbing community, largely due to the excellent and varied climbs in the area. Climbing is only one of many activities though which range from casual hiking to mountain biking or even helicopter tours if you fancy a little extra excitement.

If the more sedate pace of life is more to your liking then the area is also steeped in heritage and culture.

Cannon Hall museum and gardens are well worth a visit if you like to see the history of the country. The hall is a country house museum and was the home of the Spencer family. Exhibits in the museum include fine art, furniture and collections of glassware, and if you have an interest in anything of a military nature you’ll also be pleased to find a couple of regimental museums housed here as well.

If you like the hustle and bustle of city life, visit Sheffield, one of the largest cities in England. You could consider Sheffield as the London of the north as it has the largest theatre complex outside London, and is home to the world renowned Crucible and Lyceum theatres.
