Stay home, stay safe - COVID-19 updates

We’re asking everyone to follow government advice to stay at home and avoid all nonessential travel, including for exercise, both within and into the National Park.

Public rights of way everywhere remain open for local use. This is still dependent on other social distancing measures being followed, such as keeping at least 2 metres apart and only going outside with members of your own household.

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


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?
