Why Yorkshire

The story of the rich historical past of East Yorkshire is told at the numerous stately homes centralised by Beverley Minster.

The Minster has invited pilgrims for many centuries and is a wonderful example of medieval gothic architecture.

Yorkshire
This area's turbulent past is brought to life at Stamford Bridge, and in Wilberforce House in Hull where William Wilberforce devised his plans to abolish slavery. 2007 saw the celebrations to mark 200 years since Wilberforce finally managed to persuade Parliament to vote for his bill to abolish slavery. Visitors to his old home in Hull's old town are guided through the full gruesome story of the eighteenth century slave trade.

Wonderful museums and art galleries abound, all waiting to be explored.

The splendid stately homes of Burton Constable, Sledmere and Burton Agnes have beautiful gardens and the interiors are full of wonderful paintings and furniture. Burnby Hall Gardens are home to Europe's largest collection of water lilies set in 2 acres of lakes.

England's oldest lighthouse can still be found here on Flamborough's chalky cliffs. Its modern replacement, which can be visited, now keeps watch over the seas.

Stamford Bridge on the River Derwent has a special place in history. A stone near the old corn mill commemorates the battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066 between William the Conqueror and King Harold with a subsequent victory for William.

Steeped in history West Yorkshire has many attractions offering an insight into life from years gone by.

In Saltaire, 6 miles from Bradford Salts Mill looms on the skyline. A World Heritage Site now, it is the original mill belonging to Sir Titus Salt - a pioneer of the Alpaca wool trade, who took his workers from Bradford and built them a model village and provided jobs, healthcare and education for his people, but no pub!
