Travel to Yorkshire, England – Episode 334

categories: europe travel

The Amateur Traveler talks to Elspeth about her native Yorkshire in northern England.

“Yorkshire has a very strong regional identity as a lot of English counties have. You will probably recognize the Yorkshire Rose as what became part of what became the Tudor Rose connected with the War of the Roses. It’s a very friendly place, most people comment on that when they visit. There is a fantastic coastline, there are inland national parks, its cities, its small towns, it’s a beautiful place. ”

Elspeth starts us in York with its rich medieval history, then takes us to some of the seaside towns, the larger towns of Leeds and Hull, and some of the smaller picturesque villages like Beverly where she grew up. She winds up in the countryside and the North York moors and the North Yorkshire dales.

Hi Chris,
Both my wife and I love listening to your show when we are driving long distances. (We live in Queensland, Australia).
