Tourism and travel

Tourism contributes significantly to the North Yorkshire economy and our economic development unit continues to work to develop the county as a place to visit all year round.

North Yorkshire contains the major part of two national parks and boasts a stunning heritage coast, three designated areas of outstanding natural beauty and numerous other sites of special scientific interest. It also offers vibrant market towns, a world heritage site at Fountains Abbey and more than 12,000 listed buildings.
