"God's own country" is how people here like to talk about their region. It is doubtful that Yorkshire is really God's country, but it is a country within a country. First of all, by its size, this county is the largest in Great Britain. Through its history, Romans, Saxons and Normans all passed through here and established York as the traditional capital of the north. This medieval city of incomparable charm contrasts with Victorian Leeds, a huge metropolis based on industry and commerce. By its diversity, finally. Whether you're looking for the hustle and bustle of the city or the peace and quiet of the countryside, you're bound to find what you're looking for, thanks to an untamed wild coast and two surprisingly beautiful, rolling national parks. The whole thing has been immortalized by the 2014 Tour de France and forms one of the most magnificent regions in the whole kingdom.
