A trip to England opens up a world of opportunities and whilst being a relatively small country compared to some, you will still have a large choice of places to visit. To experience the ruggedness of the English countryside along side the friendliness of the locals then South Yorkshire has to be on your agenda.
Many people picture Yorkshire to be a hotch potch of industrialisation and, while that would be partially true many years ago, the Yorkshire of today is a different reality altogether as you will definitely experience when you come here.
The mining in the north and east of Yorkshire has long since quietened down and it is doubtful whether the mining activities will ever get even close to the heyday of there former levels. Sheffield is still world renowned for its exquisite silver canteens of cutlery.
South Yorkshire is also partially home to the outstanding area of natural beauty that is the Peak District National Park. The park is the largest of the thirteen national parks in the UK and one of the most visited in the world so you will be well catered for if you need some activities to do.
The national park caters for probably every possible taste and is very popular with the international climbing community, largely due to the excellent and varied climbs in the area. Climbing is only one of many activities though which range from casual hiking to mountain biking or even helicopter tours if you fancy a little extra excitement.

The area is also home to a number of historic buildings you can visit whilst your out and about most of which are National heritage properties.
In the Doncaster area of South Yorkshire you’ll want to visit the areas main tourist attraction which is of course the magnificent Conisbrough Castle which dates back to the 12 century.
