Top Backpacking Destinations Ranking – 6/10
The North Yorkshire Moors are one of the largest expanses of moorland in the UK and have been named a national park in order to preserve its beauty. Whilst many Brits may not see them as a real backpacking destination due to their proximity, any backpackers of other nationalities are blown away by its beauty when they come to visit.
The moors could be explored for days on end for the backpacker looking to get out into nature and drink in the clean yorkshire air. However, travellers who go backpacking looking to relax on the beach in hot climes might not be quite as entertained.
The moors also surround various beautiful market towns that provide a great getaway if you need to hit the shops and speak to some real people rather than sheep for a while! Towns like Knaresborough and Ilkley have lovely local shops, pretty buildings and Ilkley even has the famous Bettys tea rooms if you want to blow a weeks budget on some tea and scones.
So when you go backpacking to destinations across the globe, don’t forget to include the places that are right on your doorstep.
