The North York Moors 32 miles from Bridlington to Pickering.

The North Yorkshire Moors is a national park in North Yorkshire, England.

The moors are one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the United Kingdom. It covers an area of 1,436 km2 (554 sq miles), and it has a population of about 25,000. The North York Moors became a National Park in 1952, through the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act of 1949.

To the east the area is clearly defined by the impressive cliffs of the North Sea coast. The northern and western boundaries are defined by the steep scarp slopes of the Cleveland Hills edging the Tees lowlands and the Hambleton Hills above the Vale of Mowbray. To the south lies the broken line of the Tabular Hills and the Vale of Pickering.

Four roads cross the moors from north to south. In the east the A171 joins Whitby and Scarborough. Further inland, the A169 runs between Pickering and Whitby. More centrally, a minor road departs from the A170 at Keldholme and passes through Castleton before joining the A171 which connects Whitby and Guisborough. The most westerly route is the B1257 connecting Helmsley to Stokesley. The A170 from Thirsk to Scarborough marks the southern boundary of the moors area.

There is an east-west branch line rail link from Whitby to Middlesbrough in the north and the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway runs from Pickering to Grosmont with a link to Whitby.

The Moorsbus Network offers an alternative way around the North York Moors, instead of using private cars.

There are two National Park Visitor Centres - The Moors National Park Centre at Danby and Sutton Bank National Park Centre - which will help you make the most of your trip to the North York Moors.
