Now is a great time to book your Yorkshire break, plan a walk (see an aerial view of the Tadcaster Viaduct Walk above), or even take a cycling holiday.

The Yorkshire Vet

If you want some Yorkshire reading for your Yorkshire holiday, there’s a chance to win a signed copy of Peter Wright’s new book: “The Tales and Tails of a Yorkshire Vet”. Peter said:

“My mentor and former boss Alf Wight said that the life of a vet is never dull and how true he was. It is funny looking back that he found fame through his James Herriot books, and now his former surgery and myself have been taken to the nation’s heart once again through our show The Yorkshire Vet.

“It just shows what a nation of animal lovers we are and these past few years have been particularly challenging for all of us with the Coronavirus outbreak. But what it has shown me is the comfort and support out pets give us in times like these. All the same, it was this, along with recent changes to my working life that gave me an opportunity to reflect, so I want to look back at some of my favourite cases and share them with you.”

Visit York

One of the most popular day-trips for those visiting Yorkshire is a day spent taking in the sights of historic York. TV historian Dr Emma Wells has been taking a look at queenly connections at Bishopthorpe Palace for those who are interested in the royal history of the UK while on holiday.

It is National Walking Month and in addition to lots more GPX routes being added here at, it’s time to get kitted out and there’s 20% off walking & hiking equipment at Ordnance Survey.
