As part of our mission to get around the country and visit more of the beautiful UK, we’ve bagged ourselves some English Heritage passes.
With over 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites across the country we have plenty to go at. But, we’re starting with what’s in our own back yard, Yorkshire!
We live in Doncaster, South Yorkshire and want to explore what’s around us that can be easily missed during day to day life. We also home educate our son and there’s no better way to learn about history and heritage than throwing ourselves into the middle of it. We’ve created our own English Heritage Yorkshire Hit List and here it is…

We drive by Conisbrough Castle almost weekly, yet we’ve never been! History can be really cool, but local history is always cool. We plan to get Conisbrough Castle ticked off ASAP! Conisbrough Castle had a huge revamp in 2014 and is a really popular location for family and school trips in Yorkshire.
Another venue that we know well, yet have never actually investigated before. Brodsworth Hall and Gardens is literally 10 minutes from our house, I’m not sure how we have something this stunning a stone throw away and haven’t visited, even just to grab some awesome Instagram pics!
Mount Grace Priory is up in North Yorkshire and is the best preserved Carthusian priory in Britain. I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what Carthusian is but think of the Instagram photo’s at this place!
I was searching the English Heritage website for locations in Yorkshire, researching for this article. I came across this place and NEED to take Corben. It looks incredible and exactly the type of place we want to explore.
Along with looking like a really cool place to explore, Whitby Abbey is of course in WHITBY. We love visiting Whitby so this one had to make our list, if only to give us an excuse to get over to Whitby again ASAP!
We’re really excited to learn about, explore and enjoy these fantastic looking English Heritage locations. Have you been to any of these places?
Let us know your favourite locations to visit across Yorkshire in the comments below.
