Spend some time in this National Park and you'll quickly see that the North York Moors is a pretty special place. History and nature have combined to give us an amazingly vibrant landscape, rich in heritage and wildlife – an inspiring place to visit, live, work or study.

This is one of the best places in the country to see the stars, because of the low light pollution levels and clear horizons. The further away you get from street lights, the better the view – and under a really dark sky it’s possible to see up to ten times as many stars as in a city. Two places in particular are recognised as special sites in the National Park. Both Dalby Observatories in Dalby Forest and Sutton Bank have been named as Dark Sky Discovery Sites (Milky Way class) – so named because the galaxy is often visible to the naked eye from here.

Around 70 percent of the world's heather moorland is in the UK and the largest continuous expanse of moorland in England and Wales is here in the North York Moors – a sheep could wander from Egton to Bilsdale without leaving the moor. Moorland covers a third of the North York Moors National Park and most of the higher ground is covered in heather.
