Ey up! In celebration of #YorkshireDay, we’re avin’ a gander at what folk at Approach Towers think the best thing about God’s own county is. From champion tea to prize puddings – Yorkshire teks the crown!

Suzanne Watson, Managing Director

“Ilkley Moor is my happy place. Family dog walks up there are priceless. As a theatre nut I try to see as much as possible at Bradford Alhambra – but love nothing more than the annual Christmas panto with Billy Pearce!”

Helen Elson, Senior Account Manager

“I love walks around Scarborough’s North Bay. The colder and windier the better for a bracing stroll to blow the cobwebs away! You can’t beat watching the waves crash against the rocks and spotting the occasional porpoise along the way.”


Shona England-Lees, Senior Account Executive

“On a sunny day in Yorkshire, I would only ever want to be in one of two places – Piece Hall in Halifax or City Park in Bradford. Or, sipping a cold beer in the number of local breweries such as Saltaire, Ilkley and Northern Monk. For the grey days, driving over Ilkley Moor during a thunderstorm is fantastic – the whole sky lights up with lightening!”

Anisha Mistry, Account Manager

“Saltaire is my happy place in Yorkshire. I love, love, love everything about Salt’s Mill and have to buy something from the bookshop whenever I go. Equally, I couldn’t recommend the Rose & Brown Vintage fairs at Victoria Hall and Caroline Social Club enough. I also love that you always seem to be no more than 20 minutes from either a bustling city or scenic countryside in Yorkshire – the perfect mix of both!”


Betty Adams, Junior Account Executive  

“It has to be the food! What could be better than a big Sunday roast topped with Yorkshire puds at a cosy pub in the dales. To drink? A pint of Timothy Taylors. For pudding? Rhubarb crumble. Or after a night out in Leeds, it has to be cheese chips and gravy!”


Sarah Kroon, Business Development Director

“York Minster’s incredible gothic architecture is amazing – and apparently a kiss with your significant other by the Heart of Yorkshire’s stained-glass window means you’ll stay together forever! Mr Moo’s ice cream parlour is also a guilty pleasure.”

Yorkshire – we chuffin’ love ya!
