About North East of England

The North East of England is famous for its varied and dramatic landscapes, which is home to many of Britain’s magnificent and beautiful National Parks. The rolling hills and dry stone walls of the Yorkshire Dales contrast sharply with the ruggedness of the central peaks. The calm eastern shores provide home to many important species of birds and plants. The influence of the Industrial Revolutions is still evident on the landscape, where large areas once used for heavy industry have been redeveloped for modern leisure pursuits. Museums abound to celebrate the area's industrial heritage.
