Tourism is vital to the North York Moors National Park. In 2022, we had 8.74 million visitors annually, generating spend of £915m and supporting 11,076 full time equivalent jobs.
More than three quarters of our visitors say that National Park status is an important influence in their decision to visit. However, it’s essential that visitors don’t undermine the very things that attract them in the first place – the unspoilt scenery, peace and tranquillity, nature and wildlife.
The National Park Authority recognises the significant role that tourism plays in the economy of the area and we're keen to work with local businesses to encourage visitors to stay longer and spend more, sustainably, while raising the profile of the North York Moors.
