About this book

This guide takes you to the quiet North eastern corner of Yorkshire, where the county meets the sea. It celebrates the countryside of the North York Moors National Park, the Howardian Hills AONB and the Yorkshire Wolds. It also features the Yorkshire folk that live here and have moulded these beautiful landscapes, including the 'slow' and historical city of York.
