What can I do?
Go Ape Adventure Course
The 'Go Ape' adventure course situated in Dalby Forest will certainly liven up your holiday. The course has a nail biting collection of high bridges, zip-wires and Tarzan swings you will need to successfully navigate. For young children there is the junior treetops experience. However, if you prefer to be closer to the ground why not try out the recently introduced forest Segways?
Come and discover the history behind this 13th century Norman castle. Learn who has occupied the castle over the years and visit the exhibition in the chapel. If you enjoy discovering some of Yorkshire's cultural heritage and want to learn more, then head on to Whitby Abby or Helmsley Castle.
North Yorkshire Moors Railway
There can be few experiences more nostalgic and relaxing than taking a trip on an old-fashioned train. North Yorkshire Moors Railway operates steam and heritage diesel services which set out from nearby Pickering and make their way through 24 miles of Yorkshire's most stunning scenery, all the way to the seaside town of Whitby - it's a day out you'll never forget.
