Cosy pubs and beautiful scenery make Yorkshire a 'perfect getaway'

Posted by Greg Throughton

Caravan water heaters owners looking for a relaxing getaway in the new year should consider the cosy pubs and beautiful scenery of Yorkshire, according to VisitBritain.

A study of the UK tourism industry, carried out by VisitBritian, found that 55 per cent of people visiting Yorkshire did so for the beautiful scenery of its rural areas.

Another reason why Yorkshire has proved so popular with visitors is its wide range of cosy country pubs, which was the reason why 60 per cent of visitors vacationed in the region.

Twenty-nine per cent of visitors to Yorkshire came to the region to take in one of the many sporting events on offer.

Caravan water heaters owners looking for a scenic getaway may also wish to check out Scotland which finished second to Yorkshire in the poll which ranked areas of the UK on their natural beauty.

A study carried out by the tourist board earlier in the year revealed that overseas visitors head to the UK to eat, shop and sightsee.
