Welcome to Yorkshire is the official tourism agency for Yorkshire, Britain’s biggest, best and friendliest county!
We might be biased but Yorkshire really does have it all.
From stunning walks and waterfalls to vibrant cities and spectacular coastline, we even have more Michelin Starred restaurants than anywhere outside London.
We are proud to support events such as the 3 Peaks Race which puts Yorkshire on the map.
As one of the oldest and most famous fell races in Britain, this incredible challenge is close to Yorkshire’s heart.
It gives us a chance to showcase our stunning countryside and hopefully entice visitors to extend their stay and enjoy all we have to offer.
For walkers there’s the quaint village of Malham with its awesome landscape and for adrenalin junkies there are great opportunities for caving, climbing and abseiling.
If you want to kick back and relax, why not sample our array of fine ales and local produce on offer in and around the Yorkshire Dales.
The Wensleydale Creamery at Hawes has just revamped its Visitor Centre, tripling the size of its cheese shop and creating a fabulous new coffee shop.
Over in Masham, there’s the Black Sheep Brewery and the Theakston’s Brewery where you can enjoy a tour and a pint or two.
This is just for starters, the list is endless – why not stay for longer and see for yourself. We guarantee you’ll be coming back for more!”

THE RADIO AMATEURS' EMERGENCY NETWORK
THE RADIO AMATEURS’ EMERGENCY NETWORK
RAYNET is the UK’s national voluntary communications service provided by licensed Radio Amateurs.
All communications between Race Control in Horton-in-Ribblesdale and the checkpoints, including the summits of Penyghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, will be engineered and operated by RAYNET members.
Up to 30 members from RAYNET Groups across the North of England and further afield will update Race Control on the progress of competitors and provide safety information to alert officials to any potential problems.
But this is just a training exercise for RAYNET, which was formed in 1953 after the East Coast flood disaster. RAYNET’s prime role is to provide back-up communications for the Police, Fire and Ambulance services and others on a Government approved list.
Since 1953 RAYNET has been involved in numerous national emergencies, including the Lockerbie disaster where we provided up to 150 radio operators each day for the first 10 days. Fortunately, such emergencies are comparatively rare, so RAYNET trains by operating at sporting and charitable events.
These include: the Three Peaks Fell Race, the Oxfam Trailtrekkers 100K fundraiser, Lyke Wake Race and Etape-du-Dales 112-mile cycling challenge. Members from North and West Yorkshire and Cleveland operate on 25 such events each year.
Enjoy the race and keep safe.

RAYNET North Yorkshire County Controller
