Vale of York

The Vale of York is located to the west of the North York Moors, and spreads out around the ancient City of York and runs along side the Hambleton Hills. It encompasses a wide area of beautiful lush countryside, quaint villages and vibrant towns including Northallerton and Thirsk.

Visitors to the north of England are really spoiled for choice when it comes to exploring this stunning and diverse landscape. The capital of the area has to be York, a historic walled city full of culture and with a colourful history dating back to Viking times. There is so much to see and do here, lots of visitor attractions, magnificent architecture including the imposing York Minster, and a vast number of shops to explore.
