Head inland to the North York Moors National Park a treasured landscape protected for everyone to enjoy. The open moorland will give you a sense of space away from the noise of the traffic. And far away from any artificial lights you can experience truly dark skies full of beautiful stars. This is one of the best places in the country to see stars. This is classic walking country. The moors are criss-crossed with footpaths old and new, and dotted with pretty, flower-bedecked villages. The national park is also home to one of England’s most picturesque steam railways.

For a superb day out, visit the North Yorkshire Moors Railways. Escape the hustle for even half a day on board a steam of heritage diesel train. Relax in wood panelled compartments and enjoy the scenic journey through the National Park.
