Another Yorkshire. The itinerary of the great journey through England
Most traditional Yorkshire driving routes are near the big cities of York, Leeds and Sheffield. Some go straight there to see museums, cathedrals and castles. Some people tour the popular, picturesque villages, like Haworth, where the Brontë sisters spent much of their lives. Some travelers set out to create their own itineraries - gastronomic, historical, cultural. Some explore the Viking heritage, others taste the English chocolate, produced mostly in Yorkshire, others trek the national parks and discover perhaps the most beautiful part of this extraordinary county.
- Taste crabs on the coast. Count sheep before you go to bed at Yorkshire Dales Park. See work by famous artists inspired by the local environment.

London - Wakefield - Nurseborough - Harrogate
Travelling around Britain is most pleasant in summer or early autumn. The explanation for this (at least for me) is quite simple - July +10 degrees, rain and wind feel much more pleasant than, for example, November. Also, there's always a chance of sunshine in the sky by lunchtime, even if meteorologists haven't warned about it. But as we set off on our Yorkshire road trip, we grabbed all the waterproof gear we had at home just in case: umbrellas, raincoats, hats and rubber boots with warm fleece socks.

Howard Castle and the county capital - the city of York
