Holidays are on hold for just a little bit longer...

We’re asking everyone to follow government advice to stay at home as much as possible. Outdoor exercise is only allowed if you are social distancing, including staying 2 metres apart from those not in your household or social bubble. We will be constantly reviewing all government advice in relation to COVID-19 and will updates our website accordingly.

We hope the experiences here will inspire you to visit in the future. Read our latest #StayAtHome blog and plan your next break. We've also got some ideas to bring the outdoors indoors, learn new things, glimpse into another corner of the world and reconnect with nature on our #NatureForAll page.

The stunning National Park will be waiting for you to enjoy fully when it is safe to do so and we look forward to welcoming you back then. #DreamNowVisitLater


When you're ready to escape to nature, you can count on the North York Moors National Park for inspiration.

Whether you love nothing better than learning a new skill, trying out a restaurant for the first time, seeking solitude in peaceful spots, watching wildlife, or enjoying smiley moments with friends in beautiful surroundings, our National Park is full to the brim with options to shape your downtime just the way you want.

We’ve pulled together some ideas to get you started on great ways to enjoy ‘time for you’ across our treasured landscape.
