Local businesses received a welcome boost with the launch of our new visitor guide at the newly opened Talbot Hotel in Malton last week. Guests including the Hon Simon Howard, mountaineer Alan Hinkes, authors Peter Walker and Mike Pannett and artist Ashley Jackson celebrated the publication of Dalesman’s North York Moors, Coast & York visitor guide which we hope will help attract tourists from all over the country to the region. The guide also includes areas like the Vale of Mowbray, Vale of York, the Wolds, Humberside and Holderness and South Yorkshire, making it one of the most comprehensive guides ever produced for the region. Its sister guide, dedicated to the Yorkshire Dales and South Pennines, has quickly become established as the ideal companion for everyone who heads to the Dales and has benefited businesses looking to inform visitors of the goods and services they have on offer.
The Hon. Simon Howard said: “The compilers of this much-needed guide have taken on an enormous task. The area it covers encompasses some of the most diverse and beautiful countryside in the whole of the UK. From the rich and fertile Vale of York, to the wild heather clad dales and vales of the North York Moors and the rolling Wolds and dramatic coastline, this part of Yorkshire has everything.”
Even in my job, which involves searching the length and breadth of our great county seeking out stories for the country’s best selling regional magazine, I still come across parts of Yorkshire which astound me. And none more so than in the area to the east of the A1. It is truly a land full of surprises – stunning landscape, a glorious coastline, perfect walking country and enough history and heritage to keep even the most discerning visitor enthralled.
