Summer in North Yorkshire - Gisborough Hall    

Summer in North Yorkshire 

As the weather warms up and the grounds, fields and hedgerows start to bloom, we’re looking forward to all that summer has to offer in North Yorkshire.  We’ve handpicked some of our favourite summer activities and events to share with you…

Visit the North Yorkshire Coast

When summer arrives there’s no better place to be than beside the seaside.  As places beside the sea go, we’re spoilt for choice with the North Yorkshire coastline just a short drive away.  Some of our favourite spots are Saltburn-by-the-sea, Whitby, Runswick Bay, Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay – find out more about these coastal gems here

Explore the North York Moors

With over 1,400 miles of natural beauty, The North York Moors National Park is home to heather moorland, rolling hills, forests, ancient woodland, and dramatic coastline.

In late summer the moorland heather flowers bloom, transforming the landscape into a beautiful carpet of purple.

There are plenty of picturesque walks through the North York Moors National Park for you to soak up the scenery.  Whether you want a leisurely saunter or strenuous hike you’ll be able to enjoy the great outdoors and connect with nature. You’ll find some great walking routes on the North York Moors website.

Country shows are a huge part of summer in North Yorkshire; a celebration of farming, country life often with entertainment and great local food.

Flower picking in Gisborough Priory Gardens
