Hi., are going to york next week but would also like to try another place in the region ie Pickering or wetherby. Not really bothered where as long as it is pleasant.Any recommendations would be appreciated


It all depends what you are looking for in a town. Pickering is not a place I can get excited about but if you want to spend a full day out go to Pickering and get the steam train to Whitby with a hop off for an hour or so at Goathland. It will not be a cheap day out but it will give you a good taste of what North Yorkshire is about.

Harrogate? or Skipton? I like Skipton!


Harrogate is a nice town to live in but I am not sure there is a lot to see or do for a visit, maybe combining it with a visit to Knaresborough would be good.


Skipton is quite a drive away.

I agree with lynneroy Beverley is a very pleasant town ,there is also a nice campsite at Castle Howard ,which although its not a town ,is a lovely stately home and it has a lovely deli pp :)





I have always promised myself I would go to Beverley.


Do you know if there a is campsite within easy cycling distance that you could recommend?
