First things first – how to get around
Fast trains of the East coast connect York with London, Newcastle and Edinburgh. Leeds is also regularly run by trains from London, and it is in the center of the transport system of railways and highways, which covers much of West and South Yorkshire. Trains also go to Scarborough (from York) and Whitby (from Middlesbrough), while you can get to the railway branch of Settle-Carlisle, going to the southern and western Yorkshire valleys, from Leeds.
A North Country Rover ticket (any four days out of eight, £ 68) allows you to travel unlimitedly by train north from Leeds, Bradford and Kingston upon Hull, and south of Newcastle and Carlisle. The private railway lines where the locomotives go will make it possible to have a good day in the air by rolling, for example, by the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway to Haworth or the North Yorkshire Moors Railway between Pickering and Grossmont.

Castle Howard is the first in the list of majestic buildings in Yorkshire, but there are also important relics of the industrial revolution: from the splendor of the Town Hall Leeds to the Italian-style vaulted galleries of the village of Saltaire factory workers on the outskirts of Bradford. In earlier times, before the Reformation, the largest number of church buildings were concentrated in Yorkshire, rather than in any other English county.
Here there were not only centers of religious seclusion, but also a commercial area where the funds of the local huge industry for processing wool could find shelter. The ruins of church buildings have survived today in Founta, Rivolk, Bolton Abbey, in Whitby and other places. The castle ruins can be seen in York, Richmond, Scarborough and Pickering. More than twenty of them were erected in Yorkshire by the Normans.
