If you pick up a hire car at Leeds Bradford airport you’ll be ideally situated to start exploring the Yorkshire area – there are great sights in all directions. This is one of Britain’s most popular counties to visit, thanks to the combination of exciting cities and unspoilt countryside.
The renowned Yorkshire Dales National Park is a short drive to the north-west. These inspiring landscapes of green valleys running between high rolling hills are dotted with picturesque stone farmhouses and cottages. You’ll enjoy gazing at the timeless views and it’s easy to find plenty of stately homes and pretty little villages to explore.
Look out for proud rural market towns like Richmond and Leyburn too. They’re perfect for browsing antique shops and finding traditional pubs and cafes. And don’t miss the big sights, like the amazing Ribblehead railway viaduct at Settle and the White Scar Caves at Ingleton, the longest show cave in the country.
The old industrial powerhouse of Leeds has been reborn as a glamorous city-break destination. The city’s factories and mills have become stylish galleries and designer stores - look out for big names in fashion like Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood. You’ll also find a lively food and culture scene to rival London and a selection of major attractions, like the Royal Armouries Museum, the beautifully restored Victorian Quarter and Kirkgate Market, the biggest covered market in Europe.
The mills of Bradford date back to the industrial revolution but are more likely now to house arts centres and spas. The best one to visit is Saltaire, which stands amid a neat model village of terraced houses originally built for its workers. The whole complex has been designated as a World Heritage Site and you’ll find it is full of bohemian galleries, shops and cafes. In the heart of Bradford check out the fascinating interactive displays at the National Media Museum and up on the moors, enjoy a stroll around the pretty village of Haworth, once the home of the Bronte family.
A short drive to the north of Leeds Bradford airport, the elegant spa town of Harrogate has a genteel air thanks to tree-lined streets of period villas, neat parks and up-market shops. Enjoy a classic English tea at the award-winning Betty’s teashop and enjoy the tiled interior of the public spa.
Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
