This bank holiday weekend was set to be the hottest May Day Bank Holiday on records; meaning the sun finally has his hat on, and the weather finally seems to be picking up!

In light of this, we have picked out 5 great places to explore in Yorkshire now the good weather is finally back!

Kirkstall Abbey

Situated right by the River Aire and surrounded by a beautiful park and grounds, Kirkstall Abbey is a fantastic attraction, offering an amazing area to explore in the sun. The remains of this Cistercian monastery in Kirkstall hold a huge amount of history and interesting stories. This is a sure-fire hit this summer with locals and tourists alike. Pack up a picnic and get yourself down to Kirkstall Abbey to enjoy a bit of history in the sunshine.

Malham Cove

A little bit further out from the city centre, but more than worth that extra travel time. Drive just over an hour North West from Leeds City Centre and you will find yourself at Malham Cove, a 230ft high limestone cliff. This North Yorkshire natural beauty spot has amazing visitors and locals alike for centuries. With many walks around the cove and its surroundings, you will not be short of places to explore. If country walks and amazing views are your thing, take the drive up to Malham Cove one sunny weekend, and you won’t be disappointed.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

One for the artist in all of us… Yorkshire Sculpture Park offers a little bit of difference in terms of Yorkshire’s country park walks. Focusing on modern and contemporary sculpture, this exhibition of art is in a beautiful setting, which will allow you to enjoy award-winning art and the great outdoors all at once. With a plethora of sculptures to see, one visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park will no doubt leave you hungry for more.

Roundhay Park

We all know about Leeds’s Roundhay Park and the beautiful lakeside walks it offers, but I bet you didn’t know that Roundhay Park is one of the biggest city parks in the whole of Europe, covering over 700 acres! This means there is an awful lot more to explore here than most other city parks. From the beautiful gardens and lovely lakeside walks to the comfy and cosy cafes, there is something for everyone at Roundhay Park. Where better to enjoy a day in the sun?

Chevin Forest Park

Labelled as the ‘haven for lovers of the great outdoors’, Chevin Forest Park offers a fantastic location to take in the West Yorkshire countryside. Displaying fantastic views over West Yorkshire, climbing to the top will allow you to see for miles in any direction, making it near on impossible to not agree with those who claim that Yorkshire is God’s Own Country. Round up your friends, dust off your walking boots and visit Chevin Forest Park this summer, for views that you won’t forget.
