We Are Yorkshire!

The Heart and Soul of England

Good day, fellow Yorkshire folk and lovers of all things Northern! The land of the white rose isn’t just a county; it’s a state of mind. It’s an ethos. It’s the beating heart of England, filled with a rich tapestry of culture, history, and jaw-dropping natural beauty. We are Yorkshire, and we have a story to tell—a story too grand for mere words but, by gum, we’re going to try!

Unparalleled Natural Beauty

Let’s begin with Mother Nature’s bounty, shall we? Our home is dotted with not one, but three national parks! From the romantic, purple heather-covered expanses of North York Moors to the verdant valleys and limestone pavements of the Yorkshire Dales, and let’s not forget the rugged beauty of the Peak District. Here, the air is fresher, the grass is greener, and the skies, oh, those immense Yorkshire skies, they stretch as far as your dreams can reach.

A Cultural Tapestry Like No Other

But Yorkshire isn’t just pretty to look at. It’s a region steeped in history, art, and tradition. Our towns and cities buzz with creativity. Take a trip to the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth or stand in awe before the vibrant canvases of David Hockney. The air we breathe has inspired the likes of Dame Judi Dench, the Brontë sisters, and countless others who’ve touched the soul of the world.

A Culinary Odyssey

And let’s not forget our culinary contributions. Yorkshire Pudding, anyone? Our food is a reflection of our spirit—unpretentious, hearty, and downright delicious. From Michelin-starred restaurants like The Angel at Hetton to local chippies serving up the finest fish and chips you’ll ever taste, we’re a gastronomic paradise.

We’re a Sporting Nation!

If you’ve got a passion for sports, Yorkshire’s the place to be. Did you know we’ve got more top racecourses than any other region of the UK? Or that our Olympians—think Nicola Adams and the Brownlee Brothers—are of world-class calibre?

And Cycling? We’ve Got That Covered Too!

Oh, and how could I forget about our love affair with cycling? We hosted the Grand Départ of the Tour de France in 2014, and since then, the wheels haven’t stopped turning. The Tour de Yorkshire, launched in 2015, became an annual spectacle that showed off our scenery and our spirit in equal measure.

Yorkshire is as a result an official UCI Cycle City region, and the Yorkshire.com business are the successors in title to all of that proud heritage, protecting and promoting the region as a true home of cycling.
