Yorkshire Vacation Destinations - Where To Stay


Where to stay during Yorkshire vacations are destinations located in a county in Northern England that is located within the region of Yorkshire and the Humber, one of England’s nine official regions. Yorkshire is the largest county in England, holding approximately five million people and covering an area of more than three and a half million acres. Since Yorkshire is so large, it has been divided into the smaller counties of North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire. However, Yorkshire continues to be recognized as a geographical territory and cultural region that are popular for Yorshire seaside rentals. Each smaller county of Yorkshire has its own county council that is responsible for its own districts. The East Riding of Yorkshire was made to be a unitary authority and ceremonial county in 1996. Yorkshire, Yorkshire and the Humber centers on the county town of York. Yorkshire’s name means “the shire based on York.” The name of York comes from the Roman word “Eboracum,” which means “yew tree estate." Yorkshire is frequently given the nickname of “God’s Own County.” Each year, on August 1st, the county celebrates “Yorkshire Day,” which is a celebration of Yorkshire’s culture and dialect. Yorkshire’s culture derives from influences of the various cultures that took over control of the county, including the Romans, Angles, Vikings, Normans and Celts (Brigantes and Parisii).


The county of Yorkshire, Yorkshire and the Humber was first inhabited around 8,000 B.C. after the retreat of the ice age. These first settlers primarily belonged to the Celtic family, but the Romans ended up invading Yorkshire under the rule of Caesar. Yorkshire was then settled by the Romans, Angles and Vikings in the first millennium A.D. Christianity became prevalent in the county as early as 314 A.D., when Christians were numerous in Yorkshire, Yorkshire and the Humber. Yorkshire’s name was not official until 1065, when it appeared in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, a collection of annuals written in Old English that kept track of Anglo-Saxon history. After the Norman Conquest of 1066, Yorkshire experienced great hardship when it was subject to the harrying of the North. Yorkshire then experienced many uprisings and rebellions through the Tudor Period.

During the industrial revolution, Yorkshire’s economy was strongly based around fishing and agriculture. The county then began to make large amounts of wool, coal and steal, which helped to develop Yorkshire’s economy further. Today, Yorkshire destinations are highly dependent on the tourist industry, attracting visitors to Yorkshire Dales with its beautiful countryside, picturesque villages and unique towns.
