Welcome back - covid-19 update (17 May 2021)

We're delighted to give you a warm welcome to the National Park. Remember some restrictions remain in place and Government guidance advises that if you’re going to travel, you should plan ahead and travel safely.

When outside meeting friends and family you do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with), this can be in a group of up to 30 (from any number of households) but you must not interact with anyone outside of your own group. You can make a personal choice on whether to keep your distance from your friends and family, but you are encouraged to exercise caution and consider the guidance on associated risks and actions you can take to help keep you and your loved ones safe.

Bring hand sanitiser for use after touching shared surfaces (gates, stiles etc) and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors.

Before you head out of the door, make sure you Know Before You Go and plan your trip carefully as some visitor facilities may still be closed. We've ideas on where to go to avoid the crowds, the latest information on which attractions are open in the North York Moors area as well as car parks and toilets.

If you're visiting the North York Moors, please follow our guidelines for accessing the National Park responsibly.


On foot, under your own steam, out on the trail... is there any better way to experience the North York Moors than heading out for a walk?

We don't think so, which is why we've put together a fantastic series of downloadable walks covering every corner of the National Park.

Spring daffs in Farndale, the legendary Hole of Horcum, romantic Rievaulx or beach-combing at Hayburn Wyke – where do you want to explore today?
