Tour de France: Grand Départ 2014
Next year, the Tour de France, the world’s biggest sporting event, has its Grand Depart in Yorkshire on 5 and 6 July. 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.
Yorkshire Festival 2014
Tour celebrations will be starting early, as the Yorkshire Festival 2014 kicks off on 27 March. So we’re planning a host of events at our places to celebrate art, culture and heritage.
Tour de Cinema
We’re a partner for one of the Yorkshire Festival’s showcase events: Tour de Cinema. Places including Brimham Rocks, Nunnington Hall and the Yorkshire Coast will host open-air documentaries and fiction films from March - June.
Get on your bike
If you’re caught up in cycle fever, we've got plenty of opportunities for you to get on your bike at our places - from family friendly trails to group cycle rides.
King of the Mountains
Stage one of the route weaves right through the land we look after in the Dales, with Cray in Upper Wharfedale forming one of the climbs for the King of the Mountains contest.
