South Yorkshire has changed dramatically over recent years from the industrial county it once was to its transformation during the 21st century to a veritable playground where people can enjoy musical, cultural and sporting pursuits with passion. You can shop till you drop in an area which has some of the best shopping in the whole of the UK, take the family out to a comprehensive range of attractions and dance the night away in night clubs that cater to all tastes in music.
Steeped in history, museums, historic monuments and Gothic architecture abounds offering a mix of ancient and modern that is difficult to find in any other part of the UK.
If rent a caravan in South Yorkshire for your next holiday, you won’t fail to appreciate the pride the locals take in their county. It has often been said that a Yorkshireman has a stronger identity in his county than he does in his country and these people are indeed a rare breed. They are incredibly friendly although often opinionated leading to a well-known colloquialism that “You can always tell a Yorkshireman, but you can’t tell him much”.
Food and Drink
Most people have sampled Yorkshire pudding but if you rent a caravan in South Yorkshire you will possibly be surprised to learn that this traditional part of the English Sunday roast is eaten before the main meal. This tradition arose because in harder times, a Yorkshire pudding eaten before the meal would fill you up so that you didn’t want as much meat which was expensive and not affordable in vast quantities.
If you have a sweet tooth you will appreciate some of the delightful sweet dishes that are traditionally made in South Yorkshire including Parkin which is a ginger cake made from oatmeal and treacle, gingerbread, liquorice Pontefract cakes and Yorkshire rhubarb triangle washed down with traditional ginger beer; or if you prefer, some real Yorkshire ale brewed by one of the many breweries including Copper Dragon, Tetley’s, Black Sheep and John Smith’s to name a few.
