Our View

If you’re seeking thrills and spills, then this theme park is the place for you – and with around 1.8 million visitors a year, it’s one of Yorkshire’s most popular attractions. It’s set in 375 acres of North Yorkshire countryside, and with over 100 rides and activities, there’s something for everyone at Flamingo Land. Enjoy a dozen stomach-churning white-knuckle rides, take a monorail ride and stroll through the extensive zoo, where you’ll find tigers, giraffes, hippos and rhinos. The theme park also boasts five great family shows and Mumbo Jumbo – with the steepest drop on any roller coaster in the world. The scale is vast – there are at least 18 different places to eat for a start – so plan ahead if you can, and consider advance purchase of the Q-buster tokens, via the website.

About the area

Discover North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.

The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.

York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
