    We will be spending a week to 10 days in Yorkshire, and possibly Scotland, as of Friday June 15th. We will be staying in the Halifax/Shipley area for at least a couple of days, but we mean to travel around and go and see nice things.
    We have already been to Haworth, Castle Howard, the mine museum, the James Herriot museum, Mallinsons Brewery in Huddersfield, the Armoury, Harrogate spa (though I'd love to go there again some time), the museum pf photography , film and television, Piece Hall,and we have been to York.

    But there must be so much more to see and do, and who better to ask than my forum friends from the very region???
    And maybe we could even organize a Yorkshire Pet Forums Cat Chat mini meeting......

    Any suggestions on where to stay once we leave Halifax are most welcome, too. We may want to travel on to Scotland, too, maybe to Oban or Islay, but we have to take into account that we will be travelin home on the ferry from Hull.

    Scarborough and Whitby are very nice.

    Scarborough, North Yorkshire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Whitby - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Some really nice places to stay and not that dear.

    Pickering is not that far away from either and has a lovely steam railway.

    Will the Kitties be coming with you or staying at home?

    Then maybe have a couple of nights stay in one of the little Villages (Hawes Leyburn, Aysgarth) in the Yorkshire Dales then go up to Oban from there, I know Oban is lovely because my brother always raves on about it.

    Whitby should be top of the list - the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula.

    Pickering is also lovely day out. The station there is the one used in the first Harry Potter film and you can catch an old Steam Train across the North York Moors National Park to some other little countryside towns. There is also a Castle and quintessentially English tea rooms that sell tea, and home made jam and scones.

    If you are heading ou 't' Yorkshire Dales way and like to walk - Mallham Cove - an ancient dried up waterfall is very cool. It takes a couple of hours to walk up and around the whole thing.

    My other ones would be York and Castle Howard but you've already had the pleasure of the experience.
