NORTH YORK MOORS (The)
The North Yorkshire Moors National Park offers 554 square miles of moorland and valleys, including old, stone-built, hamlets, charming towns (like Helmsley), ancient ruins and a dramatic coastline. This is classic hiking or touring country, but it is also home to (allegedly) the world's most popular heritage steam railway, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, which runs between Pickering and the bustling seaside town of Whitby. The picture shows the tiny fishing port at Robin Hood's Bay.
