There are so many lesser-known attractions scattered around North Yorkshire that are worthwhile visiting that happen to fall just under the radar of the average tourist. So, let’s uncover them!

Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway

Travel back in time to an era of steam power and enjoy vintage comfort along the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales when you board this restored railway system.

Take in breathtaking scenery, feast on a diverse range of cuisines, and live through comedy, drama and murder mysteries in the buffet car on one of the many themed events.

It is also suitable for children’s TV themed days out, featuring Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol and Thomas and Friends.

Georgia Theatre Royal

It may not look like much, or anything in fact from the outside, but the Georgia Theatre Royal is Britain’s oldest theatre in its original form that still shows plays to this day.

Located in Richmond, you don’t necessarily have to see a production to admire the stunning auditorium because you can enjoy a tour to see it, as well as backstage and more.

Gordale Scar & Janet’s Foss

Just a short walk from the nearest road is one of the most spectacular geological visits in the Yorkshire Dales.

Discover a one-smile limestone gorge that is home to overhanging cliffs and two waterfalls. In the opposite direction, you’ll find Janet’s Foss; a small yet impressive waterfall featuring a plunge pool. It’s perfect for a summer splash!

Museum of Victorian Science

Tucked away in Esk Valley, in the village of Glaisdale, uncover the museum for weird and wonderful scientists and wacky professors.

Ripley Castle

One of Yorkshire’s most impressive stately homes, Ripley Castle is located near Harrogate. Boasting a regal interior, this 14th-century mansion showcases acres of formal grounds and gardens as well as a beautiful lake.

We have an impressive selection of holiday homes for purchase across our parks in Northumberland, County Durham and North Yorkshire. So, what are you waiting for? Become an owner at Maguires Country Parks and start living your best holiday life.
