For some reason Yorkshire folk have been known to refer to their home county as "God's Own Country". Well, if truth be told, they have very good reason to call it that.
Not only does Yorkshire collectively (North, South, and West Yorkshire, and the East Riding of Yorkshire, and all the Metropolitan Borough Councils and the Unitary Authorities) comprise the biggest county in the UK, but it also has a vast range of landscapes, cityscapes, and some of the best beaches and coastal features anywhere in - dare I say it - the world.
Yorkshire has some of the largest, yet most accessible, wild areas in the UK in the two National Parks which straddle the northern end of the county - the North York Moors National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Yorkshire has some fine cities, with stunning architecture - ancient and modern - and vibrant nightlife. And good food and drink - it's no secret that Yorkshire has some excellent breweries in the county. Almost every village of any size has a pub, serving good ale and fine food (including the renowned traditional Yorkshire breakfast).
And Yorkshire people are rightly known for the generous welcome they extend to visitors to this marvellous part of the country.
If you haven't been to Yorkshire before, come and see what you've missed out on. If you've been before, come back soon, and get another warm welcome.
