Looking for a holiday that provides much more than just non-stop entertainment? Then you can enjoy breathtaking scenery, great city shopping and a wealth of famous historic landmarks.
With so much to see and do and even more to discover, Flamingo Land Resort provides a safe, self-contained leisure environment. However, our idyllic parkland setting is in the heart of Yorkshire, England’s largest and greenest county. Here you’ll find areas of outstanding natural beauty, sites of great historic importance and some excellent opportunities for retail therapy too.
With the breathtaking scenery of the North York Moors National Park just a few miles away and the Yorkshire Dales to the West, if you’re an enthusiastic walker or would simply enjoy some peace and fresh air, you’ll find either location hard to beat.
To the east you’ll quickly find yourself on the coast with access to the traditional English seaside towns of Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough. Travelling north you’ll soon reach Whitby, the home of Britain’s most romantic ruin, Whitby Abbey - an inspiration for Bram Stoker’s tales of Dracula.
The surrounding area boasts a wealth of notable historic monuments from Castle Howard, featured in Brideshead Revisited, and The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, as seen in Harry Potter, to York’s Clifford’s Tower and internationally renowned Jorvik Viking Centre.
A visit to York, with its meandering shopping streets and café culture, also gives you access to a world of independent boutiques, vintage stores and popular high street names. If this sounds ideal for you, don’t forget to visit Stonegate, a charming old street packed with fascinating small stores, and The Shambles, Europe’s best preserved and most popular medieval street with its wealth of shops, bars and restaurants.
