Why Move to Yorkshire?
Yorkshire (God’s own country) is one of the most iconic counties we have in the UK, and is also the largest. The wild North York moorlands, it’s Roman and Viking heritage, it is its Industrial Revolution-era towns and cities, and most importantly the friendliness of its people which combined make Yorkshire a very special place indeed.
Everything is within easy access making Yorkshire not just popular with UK citizens, but one of the most visited locations in Europe. If you are thinking of making it your permanent home, there is a wealth of amazing places you can settle both coastal and amid the county’s stunning areas of natural beauty.
Home to five cities and plenty of large towns plus a host of wonderful small towns and villages, finding your forever home offers a myriad of choices. Leeds is the largest city, followed by Sheffield, Bradford, Kingston-Upon-Hull, and historical York.
If you are working, where you move to will require access to good travel links. The main A1 motorway passes right through the centre of the county. Another important road is the more easterly A19 road which starts in Doncaster and ends just north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Relocating close to any of these main arterial roads will provide quick routes to some of the main employment areas of Yorkshire.
Popular places to live include Leeds, Beverley, Roundhay, Ripon, Saltaire, Ranmoor, and York. All offer prospective buyers something different. If a seaside lifestyle is what you are searching for, complete with sandy beaches head to Scarborough. Britain’s oldest seaside resort dates back to the spa town-era in the 17th century, while Whitby has been voted as the United Kingdom’s best beach, with a “postcard-perfect harbor”.
Those who prefer a more rural way of life are spoilt for choice. Yorkshire boasts more than 3,200 square kilometers of stunning natural beauty spread across three National Parks. Try Skipton, Easingwood, or Colne, all sit well within a short distance from AONB. These days it has become ridiculously expensive to live in or close to any of our cities. However, when it comes to value for money, Yorkshire is hard to beat as homes across the county cost a fraction of the cost of other areas of the UK.
Education is another factor you may have to think about, and Yorkshire provides masses of choices when it comes to choosing a school, college, or a university. Work or leisure, “God’s own Country” Yorkshire can provide all you need to live a full and happy life with all the modern conveniences on your doorstep or within easy reach.
Working in Yorkshire
Although the past 18 months have seen an overall decrease in job availability in the UK, mainly due to the covid situation, there has been a recent shift.
According to UK Government statistics, all regions are now above pre-coronavirus levels, with Scotland having the largest percentage increase on the month. This is positive news if you are looking for employment in Yorkshire.
Yorkshire has a mixed economy, accounting for about 8-10% of UK GDP. The City of Leeds is Yorkshire’s largest city and the leading centre of trade and commerce and is also one of the UK’s larger financial centres.
Tourism has become increasingly significant and a growing sector right across the county generating more than £9 billion per annum and supporting almost 225,000 jobs.
Many large British companies are based in Yorkshire or were founded there such as PD Ports. They own and operate Teesport, between Middlesbrough and Redcar.
Bus and coach buildings Plaxton, McCains frozen foods, Ebuyer the largest independent online retailer of computer and electrical goods, and Skipton Building Society are all based in the county.
With a myriad of small independent businesses supporting Yorkshire’s economy, depending upon your skills, there is sure to be a job to suit you
Yorkshire Schools & Education
The standard of education across the county is excellent. Yorkshire has a large base of primary and secondary schools operated by both local authorities and private bodies, and a dozen universities, along with a wide range of colleges and further education facilities.
A good number of schools both primary and secondary have been rated well by Ofsted, receiving their highest award of “outstanding”.
The Sunday Times published a report entitled The Sunday Times School Guide for Yorkshire.
Ranked by how well their students performed in their exams, the newspaper revealed that the top three schools were Ripon Grammar School, Skipton Girls High School, and Ermysted’s Grammar School, Skipton.
For more information regarding the results of this report click here. Five universities are based in Leeds, two in Sheffield, two in York, and one each in Bradford, Hull, Middlesbrough, and Huddersfield.
Plus, eight of Yorkshires universities are ranked in the UK’s top 100. The highest ranking goes to the University of Leeds, 14th place, followed by the University of York 30th place and closely behind, the University of Sheffield 33rd.

Things to do in Yorkshire
When it comes to entertainment, there is an endless list of attractions to choose from across this amazing county.
As large swathes of Yorkshire are given over to “areas of outstanding beauty”, finding a place to walk, hike, cycle, camp, or picnic close to where you live is simple.
Some of the most popular locations are the county’s three national parks; Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, the Peak District which includes the Pennines.
When you are in the mood for a good dose of culture you are sure to find it in one of Yorkshire’s large cities.
Leeds, Sheffield, and York are your best bets. Each is packed with a massive choice of entertainment-filled metropolitan spaces.
Yorkshire is not just green rolling countryside. Seaside locations are also popular places to spend time. Best beaches include Staithes Beach, Runswick Bay, and Saltwick Bay.
For more ideas visit the following sites:
Yorkshire is the place to be if you dream of owning a real family home complete with a large garden, close to either outstanding countryside or scenic ocean views which won’t break the bank financially.
From the buzz of the big cities to the tranquillity of the moorlands, there is something for everyone in Yorkshire.
Having an average sold price over the last 12 months of just £209,673 is a huge advantage for Yorkshire. Even more so when in certain locations you can reach London in under 23 hours!
In towns such as Hull, Doncaster, and Grimsby, it is entirely possible to purchase a three-bedroom terraced property from as little as £10,000. The choice is endless as there are thousands of homes available.
The most sought-after locations are of course, more expensive but still comparatively moderately priced. York, Harrogate, and Scarborough are among the most popular towns.
Homes in these regions vary in price, York has an average of £330,302, Harrogate £410,747, and Scarborough £194,439.
One thing is certain, whether you decide to settle in the north or the south of Yorkshire, your money is going to stretch a long way.
