Looking for things to do in the North York Moors? Hop onto one of the many right-of-way footpaths which cut across heather coated heathland, ridges and North Sea cliff edges in the North York Moors. Follow dinosaur footprints to the Jurassic bays of the Heritage Coast and keep your eyes peeled for fossils. Snap farmland framed by Cistercian abbey ruins. This North Yorkshire national park is teeming with birdlife – have your binoculars ready to zoom in on red grouse and merlin, the UK’s smallest bird of prey. Sore feet? The ‘ways’ are dotted with plenty of traditional inns serving cask ales and home-cooked grub for weary walkers.
