Special English Courses
This quote is from the Lonely Planet who voted Yorkshire the 3rd best place on the planet to visit in 2014.
It’s only a matter of time before this rough-around-the-edges gentleman of the north gets the traveller attention it deserves. Yorkshire’s local athletes helped the county clock up more medals in the 2012 London Olympics than entire countries such as South Africa, Spain and even the 2016 hosts, Brazil. As if basking in Yorkshire’s glory, last year a poll revealed the North Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate was the happiest place in Britain. Bradford has become the world’s first Unesco City of Film, a new state-of-the-art gallery in Wakefield is giving London a run for its money, and Yorkshire now has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other county outside London. In 2014, this welcoming region of rugged moorlands, heritage homes and cosy pubs will be able to hold its head even higher when the Tour de France begins its grand départ from Leeds.
And this year – 2017 Hambleton (our specific area of North Yorkshire) was voted the 5th best place to live in the UK. The criteria were low crime rate, high employment rate, health, weather (we have a micro-climate), life-expectancy, happiness of residents and number of pubs (I think we have the most :-))
