NYMR 60’s Festival

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway recently celebrated their 60s festival at their railway stations.

Live music and car shows were sign amongst the stations and people took tours around them on the famous Steam Trains.

I was even lucky enough to climb aboard the steam train and see how hard it is and how extremely hot it is to make the Steam Train Run.


Lots of people came to the event and dressed up for the occasions. And personally, I love the excitement of peoples faces when the Stream train approaches the station sounding its whistle.

Helmsley- Part 3

I have returned to Helmsley for the third time, and this time I took a visit to the Helmsley Open Air Swimming Pool.

The Pool I would call a Hidden Gem on a summers day in Helmsley, you not only have the pool but the backdrop of the North York Moors behind.

I also got to meet Helen De Meyer who is swimming in every Lido in the UK and Helsmely was her 74th.


When you have finished cooling off, take a trip to the town, which has a lot of offer from historic castles, walled gardens and shopping.

Fraisthorpe Beach

Fraisthorpe Beach is a perfect place to visit if you enjoy the quieter and calmer experiences.

It’s just off the coast of Bridlington and is perfect for dog walkers who also share the beach with horses and their riders.Β Β  E77632C4-FCB9-40AC-82CA-14B770990EE1

You can walk for many miles on the coastline and on a perfect sunny day, you can see Bridlington and even walk to it.

When you are at the top of the cliffs you can see some amazing views of the bay. To park is only three pounds for the whole day, and is less than two minutes away from the sand.

For people who want to stay longer, there is a caravan park next door. There is also a large dog-friendly cafe if you need a bite to eat.
