Hopes of Ryedale Tourism Boost as New Leaflet Launched

Craig Train 290414

3:41pm 29th April 2014

A new brochure showcasing the diverse range of accommodation, attractions, events and retailers in Ryedale’s market towns has just been launched

The brochure covers Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside, Malton, Norton and Pickering and has been sponsored by the fabulous North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Major attractions featured include Helmsley Walled Garden, Nunnington Hall, Dalby Forest plus accommodation providers and businesses in all the five towns, together with details of market days for each area.

Twenty thousand copies of the brochure are currently in distribution across Yorkshire, and will be available at events and exhibitions throughout the year.

Danielle Ramsey, the railway’s Marketing Manager said: “We’re really excited to be sponsors of the this leaflet, especially on the back of our recent nomination for Large Visitor Attraction at the Visit York Tourism Awards, and delighted to continue our support for the Welcome to Yorkshire local tourism office and local councils who are all bringing more visitors to our market towns, through the Moors and onto the coast via the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.”

The railway is currently gearing up for a busy Bank Holiday weekend – on 2 to 5 May, it presents its Spring Steam Gala, with a major highlight being a visit by the UK’s fastest steam engine in preservation, No 4464 ‘Bittern’.

Janet Deacon, North Yorkshire area director, Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “The area has a diverse range charming market towns and each one has a huge amount to offer. This is just one of key publications that we produce to showcase the fantastic tourism offer that is available across the Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors.”
