Yorkshire Moors - Daytrip, York: 5 reviews and 5 photos


The Yorkshire Moors are 35 miles North from York is the area called the North York Moors which separate North Yorkshire from the industrial area of Teesside. The National Park area comprises 23,000 hectares of Forestry Commission land. The North York Moors has England's largest expanse of heather covered moorland and is bound on the eastern edge by a dramatic unspoilt coastline of some of England's highest cliffs. Access to the sandy shore is limited to just a handful of fishing villages and the ancient towns of Whitby and Scarborough.

In late summer, the heather is in full bloom and the moors become a magnificent purple carpet, so pretty. I was lucky enough to be there at that time. At other times of the year, the moors appear barren and forbidding.
