Description
Discover the well-known area of the North York Moors National Park which is popular for the largest area of heather moorland in England, there is certainly much more to discover than meets the eye. The moors are essentially the most important historical areas in Britain in terms of faith, farming, mining, fishing and smuggling. It possesses more historical scheduled monuments than at any place in the country such as standing stones, stone crosses and burial mounds.

On this full-day tour, explore the historic towns, picturesque villages and historic sites such as Whitby Abbey. Gaze in awe at the unrivalled views across the Yorkshire coast and for miles across the Yorkshire. On a clear day, the spectacular views can exceed 50 miles.

Discover the Smuggling history of Robin Hoods Bay, this quintessential fishing village is built on the steep cliff edges dropping from the moor tops into the North Sea and is famed for its narrow winding streets used by smugglers to evade the customs and excise offices. There are numerous independent local shops to enjoy and for a bit of adventure, a maze of narrow winding paths that lead you through the hidden street that were used hundreds of years ago by the smugglers.

We conclude the day with an enjoyable stop in spectacular village of Hutton le Hole. This village comprises of stone cottages linked the wool industry of the area and many date back in the 17th century. A little stream cuts by means of the centre of the village which is lined with trees and white fencing. Sheep often are found grazing on the village greens. It is often identified as the prettiest village in the moors.
