The North York Moors is saying ‘thank you’ to National Lottery players by offering a 20% discount on retail (excluding alcohol) at both its National Park Centres between Monday 3 and Friday 7 December.

The North York Moors National Park Authority has received more than £5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund since 2013, including £2.8 million for the current Land of Iron project. This external funding has supported the Authority in its work to protect and conserve the habitats and heritage that make the North York Moors such a special place.

Between Monday 3 and Friday 7 December, any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard at either the Sutton Bank National Park Centre, or the Moors National Park Centre at Danby, will be entitled to 20% off in the gift shop. All National Lottery games qualify and proof of purchase can be either a hard copy or digital ticket. Please see terms and conditions below.

Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7.8bn National Lottery funding since 1994.  This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”

The North York Moors National Park

The North York Moors is a beautiful landscape of stunning moorland, ancient woodland and historic sites. Created on 28 November 1952 it became Britain’s sixth national park. Covering an area of 554 square miles (1,436 square kilometres) the National Park has 26 miles of coastline, two national nature reserves, 840 Scheduled Monuments and over 3,000 listed buildings, attracting an estimated 7.9 million visitors a year.

The National Park has two visitor centres, The Moors National Park Centre, Danby and Sutton Bank National Park Centre, providing opportunities for cycling, walking, eating, picnicking, shopping, crafts and wildlife-watching. The centre in Danby also houses the Inspired by… gallery, which features regularly changing exhibitions by artists who draw their inspiration from the North York Moors.

The North York Moors National Park Authority works with a wide variety of people to care for this beautiful corner of Yorkshire, providing apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities with nearly 14% of staff being apprentices from local families.
