Post four – My favourite scenic places to visit in Yorkshire

Spring is finally upon us, which means there may be a couple of days where we don’t have to wear a coat, which makes me incredibly happy! For me Spring is about exploring nature’s most picturesque locations, so here are my top three places, which I would recommend that you visit in Yorkshire.

Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden


Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden is the perfect place to visit this spring with an abundance of green lawns, stunning water features and a deer park. One of the best views on-site is without a doubt the magnificent ruins of Fountains Abbey, wherever you go in these beautiful ruins you’ll be sure to capture a number of beautiful and unique pictures.

White Horse of Sutton Bank


This place is very close to my heart, as this is the first place that Jimmy took me on our first ‘official boyfriend/girlfriend date’. Nestled into the banks, you’ll see a large white horse figure which has been a part of the hillside since 1857! As you go along the numerous paths around Sutton Bank you’ll be presented with plenty of seating, where you can sit back, relax and take in the beautiful surroundings.

The James Herriot Way


You’ll need a lot of energy for this one! Boasting a 52-mile long path, The James Herriot Way offers many amazing views of the Yorkshire Dales, including the picturesque Swaledale. During your travels you will see plenty of stunning valleys, and numerous rolling heather-clad moorlands, which offers the perfect opportunity to take a snap or two.

What are your favourite places to visit in Yorkshire? I would love to hear from you!
