Unmissable landmarks to discover during a trip to North YorkshireNorth Yorkshire is full of incredible sights, with Whitby, Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay always proving popular holiday destinations for those keen to experience the Great British Holiday at its finest. If you are heading to the region on your holidays and want to plan your itinerary nice and early, here are three landmarks you won’t want to miss.

The first is Ribblehead viaduct, a Grade II listed railway viaduct which crosses the valley of the River Ribble. It is a spot highly regarded for its natural beauty, with many people taking a detour specially to discover the incredible landscapes which surround the structure; you won’t want to forget your camera during a visit!

Another is the North Bay Railway, a miniature railway which was built back in back in 1931 and remains a popular feature for visitors to this day. Running for just under a mile between the Scarborough regions of Peasholm Park and Scalby Mills, it’s a fun method of allowing the whole family to discover the atmosphere while also enjoying a charming railway journey during a stay in one of the nearby Scarborough hotels!

Finally, reaching Whitby Lighthouse might prove quite the walk, but the views which are offered along the coastline are well worth the effort. Not to be confused with the two lighthouses located in Whitby itself, it can be found on the south-east coast from the town beyond Saltwick Bay. It is also one of just a handful of lighthouses which you can enter and walk up, with the viewing tower at the top certainly offering a sight to behold. It’s visited by many staying in any of the hotels in Whitby throughout the year.
