Hotels in Sandsend
This charming fishing village is close to the picturesque seaside resort of Sandsend and is part of The Valley, one of the most exclusive and desirable living destinations in northern England. The area began to attract significant numbers of tourists after the opening of the railways in the Victorian period, which enabled thousands of families to take day trips to the seaside in the summer.
This settlement has existed since at least the early Middle Ages, although this part of Yorkshire has probably been inhabited since the Roman Empire. Observe the splendid ruins of Whitby Abbey, a Benedictine landmark that is now a Grade I listed structure and was established more than 1,350 years. Learn more about the town's maritime history at the Whitby Museum, then spend some time on the fantastic sandy beach, which extends eastwards all the way Sandsend.
The North York Moors
A vast, largely unspoilt wilderness, the North York Moors National Park is renowned for its pictorial moorland and extensive wildlife, and overlooks a dramatic coastline with some of the highest cliffs in the country. The moors, which became a National Park in 1952, have been inhabited for at least 10,000 years and are the location of the former Cistercian site Rievaulx Abbey, which was once among the richest abbeys in the country.
One of England's most-visited country mansions, Castle Howard was featured in the 1981 film 'Brideshead Revisited' and has been the residence of the Howard family for well over three centuries. One of the most striking features of this attraction is the Atlas Fountain, which was designed in the early Victorian period and was showcased at The Great Exhibition before its construction.
