Yorkshire has three international airports serving visitors and residents alike. Worldwide links via the major hubs such as Amsterdam and London’s Heathrow make getting to Yorkshire easier than ever.
Located only a few miles away, over the Pennines (the Wars of the Roses were settled many years ago – so we won’t hold it against them) is Manchester International Airport. Numerous flights arrive here daily from the North American continent (and all the others, of course) making it a favourite with transatlantic visitors.

Rail Travel to Yorkshire
We’ve already mentioned the cross-country TransPennine Express trains from Manchester airport. Yorkshire is also well served by trains from London Kings Cross and Edinburgh Waverley in Scotland by way of the famous East Coast mainline. This is the route travelled by the romantic express trains of the Twenties and Thirties. Famous express trains such as the LNER’s Flying Scotsman and the record-breaking steam locomotive Mallard rode the rails here between London and Scotland. Of course the line is now much upgraded and modernised, but the route remains the same. The trains on this route are today run by East Coast
