Yorkshire, the United Kingdom’s largest county and commonly dubbed God’s Own County, doubtless has much to offer tourists, ranging from much gorgeous unspoilt countryside to fascinating historical castles to particularly family-friendly attractions. However, Yorkshire’s tourist attractions can be even more exciting when they are right on the doorstep! Here is a list of just some of the many great Yorkshire tourist attractions which can make it easier for many people to, with help from QuickBuyers, get cash and quickly for Yorkshire homes.
Historical buildings associated with King Richard III of England
The interest in Richard III, the last Plangent king of England, that has been reignited by the recent rediscovery of his skeleton could make it easier for many people to get cash and quickly for Yorkshire homes. This is largely because the county still has many historical buildings that were used by Richard during his lifetime; the city of York historically had a particularly strong association with Richard.
Historical buildings in Yorkshire with links to Richard include York Minster, which Richard visited during his 1483 royal progress as king and where he made his son Edward Princes of Wales; York’s Richard III Museum, the construction of the uppermost room of which was allegedly funded by Richard, and Middleham Castle, which was once Richard’s home.
National Media Museum, Bradford
This awe-inspiring museum has seven floors of galleries with exhibitions focusing on photography, television, animation, computer gaming, the Internet and the scientific principles behind light and colour. As if all of that wasn’t reason enough for many people to regularly visit this museum, it also hosts temporary exhibitions, has three cinemas – including an IMAX screen – and hosts two film festivals every year.
Bronte Parsonage Museum, Haworth
One reason why it could be especially easy to get cash and quickly from bookworms for Yorkshire houses is the county’s association with the celebrated literary sisters the Brontes: Charlotte, Emily and Anne. This museum is based in the sisters’ former home, where they spent most of their lives and wrote much of their famous novels.
Lightwater Valley, near North Stainley
This theme park is probably best known for being home to what was, for several years during the 1990s, the world’s longest roller-coaster, The Ultimate. It remains the world’s second-longest roller coaster. However, there is much more appealing about Lightwater Valley than just The Ultimate; indeed, the park boasts a total of 32 rides, which ensures that many different people can have thrilling times at the park again and again.
York’s CHOCOLATE Story, York
York has become commonly dubbed “the Chocolate City” due to being a base of the big name confectionary manufacturer Nestle, which manufactures Kit Kat, Aero and Yorkie chocolate bars in the city. York’s CHOCOLATE Story enables many people to have fun learning how York became one of the country’s best known bases for manufacturing chocolate! It also helps to make it easier for many people to get cash and quickly for Yorkshire homes from chocoholics – with, of course, help from QuickBuyers.
