RETIREMENT LIVING IN YORKSHIRE

Spanning the duration of the Celtic, Roman, Viking, Norman and the Tudor periods, Yorkshire has a vast and deep history to explore. There are more than 40 castles and abbeys all over the region, as well as seven different cathedrals. In addition, you’ll also find a huge number of museums that cover everything from historic railways to landmark battlefields.

You also can tour stately homes and their stunning gardens, including the iconic Castle Howard. Alternatively, you can visit the Yorkshire coal mines, or bring the family to the country's oldest seaside resort at Scarborough. Here you can enjoy arcades, a funfair and mile after mile of beautiful white-sand beach.

SIGHTS

If there's one thing that there's plenty of in the huge span of Yorkshire, it’s rolling green hills and peaceful meadows. From the North York Moors National Park to the valleys and patchwork fields of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, you could find yourself retiring to one of the most scenic parts of the country.

If you’d rather enjoy the sands, then you'll also find a massive stretch of unspoilt coastline, including 36 miles of Heritage Coast that runs from Saltburn-by-the-Sea down to Scarborough. Plus, there are sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, rocky shores and profound views, including the one from Boulby Cliff in Staithes, which is the highest point on the East Coast of England.
