Thank you for social distancing - COVID-19 updates

We're delighted to give you a warm welcome to the National Park. Remember, when meeting friends and family you do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with) you must not meet in a group of more than six. In all cases, you should social distance from anyone you do not live with or is not part of your support bubble. The Government recommends that you keep at least two metres away from people where possible or where this is not possible, more than one metre apart as well as taking extra steps to stay safe.

Additional restrictions apply to those living in some surrounding areas of the National Park, depending on the local COVID alert level, which you should be aware of. Please do use the postcode search tool to check the alert level for your local area.

If you are thinking of visiting the North York Moors, please follow our guidelines for accessing the National Park responsibly.


Go for a stroll, surf the waves, climb a cliff, catch a fish, go for a ride, or maybe a paddle, fancy a dip, hit a round, take to the skies - we've loads of ideas for getting active on your North York Moors holiday.

You’ll find everything from walking breaks to watersports, wildlife watching, favourite fishing spots, golf courses, cycle hire and cycling breaks, horse riding and, for rainy days, leisure centres and swimming pools. And for a sunny day, there's even a heated outdoor pool, not to mention the seaside and superb beaches too!

Need more inspiration? Our Great Outdoors Guide is full of ideas for an outdoor break, or take a look at our interactive rights of way map to find where to Walk, Ride and Cycle in the North York Moors National Park.

If you are considering running an organised event in the National Park, we’d be pleased to discuss it with you and provide advice.
