Yorkshire resident, outdoors enthusiast and travel writer Mike Bagshaw has thoroughly updated this new third edition of Bradt's North York Moors & Yorkshire Wolds, part of Bradt's award-winning series of Slow travel series of guides to UK regions. It remains the only standalone guide to this region of contrasts. Walkers, cyclists, wildlife-lovers, families, foodies and culture vultures will find everything they need to plan and enjoy time here. From magnificent cliffs and beaches along Yorkshire's Heritage Coast and rolling hills in the North York Moors (one of the original nine National Parks of England and Wales) to the Wolds' tranquil chalk grasslands, this region offers remarkable variety. Nestled at its heart is York, probably Britain's best-preserved medieval city, with its stunning Minster, northern Europe's largest Gothic cathedral. The region is increasingly popular for outdoors pursuits, which feature strongly in this guide.
