Fun Days Out in Yorkshire Moors & Coast

Jorvik Viking Centre

This York attraction is educational as well as fun as you get to learn all about the Viking-Age city of Jorvik. Archaeologists from York Archaeological Trust revealed the houses, workshops and backyards of the Viking-Age city of Jorvik, as it stood 1,000 years ago.  You get to travel around in a unique state of the art time capsule.  For a more realistic experience you might get a blast of smoke from the blacksmith's furnace.  It is recommended that you book ahead during school holidays as this popular attraction gets very busy.

Madhyamaka Meditation Centre

Madhyamaka Meditation Centre  a unique and very special centre in the Yorkshire moors offering amazing meditation experiences for experts and novices. The beautiful setting really ads to the experience and the gorgeous grounds are abundant with wildlife including Squirrels, Deer and Birds including Red Kites. The centre is now offering a special weekend retreat for families which includes family friendly guided meditations as well as fun activities such as face painting, games and a barbeque.

Scarborough Sea Life and Marine Sanctuary
Scarborough Sea Life and Marine Sanctuary is an excellent choice for a day trip if you are enjoying a family holiday in the Yorkshire region. A stroll around this fascinating centre takes customers on a journey beneath the waves and allows encounters with many strange, beautiful and fascinating creatures of the deep. Everything from the common starfish to the mighty shark can be seen. The otters, seals and penguins are very popular and feeding time is a real highlight. There are also regular talks and demonstrations throughout the day. Outside there is a children's play area and picnic spot but there is also a restaurant onsite. Family tickets are available at just 46.80 but huge savings available by calling into one of the Tourist Information Centres in Scarborough, Whitby or Filey.
Castle Howard
No matter where you are staying in the Yorkshire region a visit to Castle Howard is a must. The magnificent 18th century house has a stunning setting in breathtaking parkland with gorgeous grounds speckled with temples, lakes, statues and fountains. The formal gardens are the perfect place for a stroll and the woodland garden and ornamental vegetable garden feature some beautiful displays. Other attractions include the Great Lake where visitors can take boat trips and the adventure playground where the little ones can run around. The house is also open to the public and guided tours are available. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic but there are also 3 cafes onsite and 6 shops. An adult ticket for the house and gardens is just 13.

Very comfortable for two,O.K. for small family,but maybe a bit cramped for four adults.Our stay was for four days of superb weather,so cottage used as a base for exploring local area,and easy access to Whitby.Iam sure we will return, and recommend without hesitation.

4th year we have returned - what can we say we love this place
Stuart
Very good break we had a really great time, good location & very clean cottage
Helen
Lovely place to base yourself as feels rural but town is a mile away if you need it. Will see stay again. Cottage was clean and furnished well.
Joanne
We had a great 4 days here at Whitby. Would recommend for anyone. Not sure what all the bad reviews are for on the main sites and trip adviser?! There were 3 families stayed for a 4 night break in our parties. All accommodation was adequate, some a little smarter than the others, but all clean and perfectly suitable for our families of 4. We're looking at booking again this year!
Deborah
We have been visiting Captain Cooks Haven for 22 years - still fantastic - still love it.
Janice
It is the second time I've taken my grandchildren. We love Whitby and find it a convenient place to stay. They love the swimming pool . Could do with a better play area for older kids.
Keith
Absolutely fantastic !!!
