Things to see & do
Yorkshire is a treasure trove of houses, gardens, castles and abbeys, but it's also home to some genuine hidden gems. Did you know that you can explore a hill that resembles the Matterhorn or find hidden garden rooms at a home built from the success of chocolate? There's always somewhere different to explore or walks to discover, where will you visit this spring?
Look under rocks, up in the trees, glimpse into ponds and listen carefully for sights and sounds of nature all around. Use our handy nature spotter guides to help you.
Fountains Abbey parkrun
Whether you're a budding Olympian or just want to go for a run, head to Fountains Abbey for their weekly parkrun. Set within the stunning grounds, take in the surroundings of the abbey ruins and water garden as you go.
There's nothing better than seeing nature come to life and knowing that spring is in full swing. The sound of birds returning from their winter migration, the glimpse of butterflies flitting through the air and the sight of bluebells, cowslips and other wildflowers rising through woodland and meadows.
