Tour de France: Grand Départ 2014

This July the Tour de France, the world’s biggest sporting event, has its Grand Depart in Yorkshire. We’re really excited to be cheering on the global cycling elite in Yorkshire. Eight of our places feature on or close to the route, and we'll be watching from the sidelines along with 3 billion viewers around the world.

Book a pitch

Ensure you are roadside for the world’s biggest cycle race this July at one of our pop-up campsites. Park up your campervan or pitch a tent at one of four sites across Yorkshire and stay right in the heart of the action.
