High hills, deep wooded dales, crinkly coasts, ancient abbeys and babbling brooks through timeless villages.

The park

There’s a cacophony of life in the seas around the National Park. White-beaked dolphins and minke whales follow shoals of fish swimming south from the Arctic, and seal colonies loll beneath the coastal cliffs.

Some older natural residents have long-since left their fossilised mark, with 160-million-year-old ammonites and even preserved dinosaur footprints common on the  seashore.

Further inland, centuries of history lay beneath your feet and before your eyes in abbey ruins, gothic churches, medieval chapels and ancient stone crosses.

The National Park’s moors and woodlands are alive with birdsong. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is one of the world’s greatest heritage railways and traverses 39 kilometres of National Park countryside.

The famous Pacific voyager Captain James Cook grew up in the North York Moors and began his seafaring career in the nearby town of Whitby in 1746 as an  apprentice seaman.
