Experiencing Yorkshire the Modern Way
One of our favourite things about living in Yorkshire is that we are never left wanting for choice. Travellers might not be so lucky on this front, however, as narrowing down just a few places to visit or experience can be a difficult task with limited time. Fortunately, the technological contributions of the modern age have made this easier than ever before, and with these few tips and recommendations, no visitor should be left idle.
The first thing which all modern travellers should keep in mind is the necessity of mobile devices. They can be annoying, we know, but the advantages in terms of navigation and planning are far too great to ignore.
Your best bet is to get in front of the trip and start planning everything out before you hit the road. With programs like Google Maps, you can easily set a journey on your GPS, and by using your internet ahead of time you can also make sure that everything is open when you arrive. Be sure to keep in mind that mobile data can be a concern when it comes to maps and GPS. Following a guide like https://support.google.com/maps/answer/6291838 can help you download data ahead of time, to remove this issue entirely.
“Embrace the modern era”
It’s also a good idea to set an alternative route should you experience bad weather which ruins for your set of plans. We learned this lesson from some family members recently who had planned a walk the Cow and Calf landmark. When the rain came they changed their attention to the Cow and Calf pub instead, though we suspect might this have been the plan all along. Be sure to check https://www.vintageinn.co.uk/restaurants/yorkshire/thecowandcalfilkley for bookings if you want to make a stop.
Those who really want to embrace the modern era should consider heading on over to the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford. With seven floors of galleries and the UK’s first IMAX cinema, there is enough to keep the whole family entertained.
Of course, you can also turn to classics updated to the modern age if you want something with hint more of the traditional. Ripon Racecourse is a great way to bet on horses or try your hand at some of their classic casino games, all brought up to modern standards. Those unsure at where to start here can get a heads up on their way over as well, as there are many game variants like Penny Roulette and Superman Roulette available to play and practice on websites like https://casino.betfair.com/c/roulette
“Recharge your batteries”
Those who really want to stretch out can check out Cayton Bay for a quiet little beach which is perfect for getting away. Being modern is often a synonym for being overwhelmed, so planning a little time to recharge your batteries is always a good idea.
There is no such thing as a perfect one-size-fits-all holiday. Even the most modern of people and families will have different ideas of what they want, and what could be the most fun. Before heading off on your trip into Yorkshire you need to keep in mind that there is more than enough variety to keep everyone happy, it’s just a matter of finding what works for you.
Good luck, and enjoy your stay.
