The Explorers Road - A touring route through the cultural and historic heart of England

Several Richmondshire businesses have signed up to take part in the Explorers Road, a multi-stop touring route aimed at attracting German visitors to experience hidden gems and attractions 'off the beaten track'. 

The Explorer’s Road is an exciting new international tourism product – a 300 mile self-drive touring route stretching from Hertfordshire to Northumberland that roughly follows the A1.

It features characterful market towns by-passed by the A1 and therefore off the beaten track and largely unknown to international visitors. It presents icons of English culture such as a pint in the pub, afternoon tea, local stories and traditions. And it highlights gardens, stately homes, castles, collections and gorgeous countryside. 

It focuses on German visitors and will be promoted extensively by partners like P&O Ferries in early 2019.
