Yorkshire and the Humber is an English region covering East Riding of Yorkshire, North Yorkshire (excluding areas in Tees Valley of North East England), South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

Living in Yorkshire and the Humber

When stunning wild landscapes combine with a thriving industrial heritage, the result is Yorkshire and the Humber. Today, the focus is less on old fuels and more on environmentally friendly alternatives. Different parts of the region enjoy their own specialisms too. While Grimsby is known for fishing and agriculture, the city of York proudly displays its Roman and Viking past. In West Yorkshire, Leeds is set to become a global centre for green finance, with the Peak District-bordering Sheffield dubbed the UK’s greenest city.

Talking of the Peak District, you’ll find it along with the Pennines in South Yorkshire, making this county a great base for keen climbers. Alternatively, head to North Yorkshire to explore the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks. And with Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty thrown into the mix, this area of England is perfect for nature lovers. To the east, the North Sea coastline offers sandy beaches, traditional resorts, bird-friendly salt marshes and dramatic chalk cliffs.

Transport-wise, the M62 runs east-to-west through Yorkshire, while the M1 and A1 run north-to-south. The region’s extensive A-road network centres on the major cities and towns, with the A64 connecting the northeast settlements to York and Leeds. You can catch East Coast Main Line trains in these two hubs, while the Midland Main Line finishes at Sheffield. The TransPennine Express covers the east-west route, connecting Yorkshire and the Humber to Manchester and Liverpool. On top of this, extensive commuter services operate in Leeds, Bradford, and Sheffield, with the latter also home to the Sheffield Supertram. Three major airports also serve the region.
