Year-round attractions in North Yorkshire

Like much of the UK, North Yorkshire has average summer temperatures in the low 60s, although 86 is known to make an occasional appearance. Vacations from mid-August and into September offer the chance to see one of the UK's largest heather moorlands erupt into a blaze of purple. Winters can be chilly, with lows of a little over freezing.
