Things To Do in Yorkshire + Free Yorkshire Water Adventure Pack

Duck feeding in Yorkshire

When I was a little girl with curly blonde locks (I know, it’s hard to believe!) my ultimate favourite thing was feeding the ducks. There’s a home video of me somewhere dragging a doll around in the shadow of my big brother shouting, “go see ducks Danny!”. Even at just 29 I remember the days as a kid having picnics in Fairburn Ings with my Grandparents and playing out in the village until my tea was ready. Don’t get me wrong, I love video games, binge watching TV shows and making new friends on the internet, but I feel like kids these days are really missing out on the simple outdoors.

Things To Do in Yorkshire

Yorkshire Water got in touch with me the other day and asked what I thought of their free adventure packs to encourage kids and teenagers to spend more time outdoors. They’re free to download with a range of outdoor games like cloud hunting and duck feeding… things I still love to do now! It’s really got me thinking about how beautiful Yorkshire is and how much I want to get out and see more of the gorgeous countryside. So here are my top 5 things to do in Yorkshire, don’t forget to head over to Yorkshire Water to download your adventure pack to take along too, even if you’re just a big kid like me!

The Brown Cow Pub, Bingley

// Head out for a long walk, pack your camera and finish up at the pub for a hearty lunch. Go on, treat yourself to a pudding for all those miles! I recommend exploring around Bingley, which is easily accessible by train, and having a lovely lunch at the Brown Cow.

// You’ve got to hang out with the birds at Lotherton Hall, they have some of the kookiest looking dudes, including flamingos!!

// Enjoy fish & chips on the beach in Scarborough – we even went in January and had an amazing time eating ice cream and wandering along the beach!

// Head out for a day in Ripon, exploring the cathedral and hanging out on the banks of the river having a picnic. This was one of our absolute favourite places as kids, eating turkey sandwiches and paddling in the water – real bonding time for me and my big bro!

// Set up a tent in your own back garden!! Lay on the grass picking animals out of the clouds and then huddle up with blankets and listen to the world outside your tent. The simple things never get old.

Outfit Post: Layering for the Northern Seaside

Yorkshire Fashion Blogger in Scarborough

Back at the start of the year, Boyfriend and I took a weekend break out to Scarborough for a bit of a recharge. I’ve been to Scarborough a couple of times since we used to go as kids, but hadn’t really ventured north beyond the castle for years so this time we hopped in a taxi from our hotel and started our day out by exploring the North Bay.

Seaside Outfit Post

Oof, I’m in love! I could live in one of these gorgeous colourful beach huts lining the seafront… OK maybe I could only live in 6 of them put together, but could you imaging having a cuppa and settling with your sketchbook looking out over the wild North Sea?
It was a lovely walk round from the North Bay to the South Bay, if a little breezy. Literally hold on to your hats!

I picked this outfit for the day as I knew it would be cold at the Northern seaside, but we’d be doing a lot of walking and I didn’t want to get all hot and bothered in a coat. I layered up my pretty lace dress from H&M with thick leggings, a jumper (tied in a knot to make a crop), cardigan and scarf – layers are key – and popped on my Minnetonka boots to keep me warm and comfy all day long. My gorgeous storm print bag was a gift from my bestie – she knows me so damn well!
