Aerial views

The Crags and estate

The Crags and estate

Enjoy the best birds-eye views without taking to the air. We've picked ten views that we think are simply breath-taking, especially in autumn where the colour changes every day. All you have to do is get there.

Halloween fun

Half term and Halloween are just around the corner. We've got lots of Halloween events including pumpkin carving, fancy dress parades, creepy tours and bat walks. Or you can discover spooky stories and scary objects across Yorkshire and the North East when you download our Gruesome Gruel Halloween trail.

Apples galore

In the orchard at Beningbrough Hall there are over 50 varieties of apples and pears. For a fortnight in October, we'll be going apple crazy, serving up dishes in the restaurant with fruit gathered from the numbers trees. Come and compare the size, shape and shade of each fruit and taste the different flavours.

Chocolate delights

It'll be chocolate heaven at Goddards from 13 - 19 October as we celebrate Chocolate Week. Sample cakes and and other recipes in the tearoom, hear talks, enjoy displays and most of all sample our chocolate treats.

Nature wows

As the season evolves, join a deer walk at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Ahead of the rutting season, you'll see the wild herd and hear them bellowing across the park. Keep your distance for incredible sights and sounds.
