Northern England's Yorkshire County is the largest in the United Kingdom in terms of its land area, taking up much of the northeastern part of England.  Yorkshire figured prominently in the War of the Roses during the late Middle Ages and was an important center of the Industrial Revolution.  In this drone video, top contributor hamzamuj uses a DJI Mavic Pro drone to take us on an aerial tour of his native Yorkshire, giving us drone's eye views of Whitby Abbey, the scenic former fishing town of Staithes, and the Cow and Calf Rocks.

Yorkshire Dales is an upland area of Yorkshire in the North of England, full of moors, hills and ridges.  Most of it is part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, one of the largest in England, which attracts over 8 million visitors per year.  In this video, top contributor Hamza Mujtaba uses a DJI Mavic Pro drone to film a Toyota GT 86 sports car cruising through the region, driving past many of the area's most well-known landmarks including Ribblehead, Ingleborough, Horton-in-Ribblesdale, and Whernside.

Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay




While Bram Stoker's timeless 1897 novel Dracula is largely set in what is modern-day Romania, a portion of the book is set in the Yorkshire region of England.  In this drone video by AirVuz contributor bumblefalconer, you'll see the two spots.  The first part of the video was filmed over the town of Whitby, which lies at the mouth of the River Esk in North Yorkshire.  The second part of the video features the fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay, which is located just south of Whitby, where Dracula's ship runs aground in the novel.

Hawarth is a village in West Yorkshire, sitting in the center of northern England.  Using a DJI Mavic Pro Drone, top contributor and pilot Hamja Muztaba created this marvelous aerial video of Haworth, which features prominently in one of the most famous works of English literature: in Emily Brontë's 1847 novel Wuthering Heights, Thrushcross Grange is believed to have been inspired by a manor in Haworth.  The video also includes footage of nearby Cullingworth and the Hewenden Viaduct.

The Ribblehead Viaduct


Ribblehead viaduct - Perfect timing


AirVuz contributor Jabomedia got some perfect timing to film a train crossing England's famous Ribblehead Viaduct.  The The 1.3k ft. (400 m) train bridge opened in 1875 to carry trains across a valley in North Yorkshire, England.  The bridge was one of the key pieces of infrastructure to allow frequent and smooth north-south train passage between the UK regions of England and Scotland.  Like Scotland's Glenfinnan Viaduct (which was built a few decades later), the Ribblehead Viaduct has been seen in numerous movies and TV shows.    

Whitby Abbey


Whitby Abbey: DJI Mavic Pro


Skydronauts used some amazing post-production editing to create this marvelous drone video of Whitby Abbey, situated in the Yorkshire town of the same name.  This iconic looking town on the coast of Northern England has a long literary history.  Famously, Whitby made a notable appearance in Bram Stoker's classic novel Count Dracula.  Stoker was inspired by the gothic appearance of the town, and in the book the dreaded count from Transylvania strikes Whitby after his ship runs aground there.

Top contributor hamza_mujtaba created this excellent nighttime aerial view of Bradford, one of the main cities in the UK's Yorkshire region.  Located in the county of West Yorkshire, it's part of a metropolitan area that includes Leeds and is the primary urban concentration in Yorkshire.  Bradford came to prominence during the Industrial Revolution, when it became known as the Wool Capital of the World.  In post-industrial England, it's emerged as a major center for filmmaking and other arts.  

Buttertubs Pass, Yorkshire Dales


Drive over Buttertubs Pass, Yorkshire Dales


Contributor whiterosedrives used a combination of drone and car-mounted (Porsche 911, no less) camera footage to create this video from a famous highland pass in the Yorkshire region of England.  It's called Buttertubs Pass, and it runs through the Yorkshire Dales upland area.  The road has been extensively featured in the very popular BBC TV series Top Gear.  The road gets its name from the giant "potholes" which lie along the side of the road, some of which are as deep as 20 meters (around 66 ft.).  

Whitby: Port Town of North Yorkshire




AirVuz contributor bumblefalconer used a DJI Mavic Mini 2 drone to create this excellent aerial video of the English port town of Whitby.  Situated at the mouth of the River Esk in North Yorkshire, Whitby dates to the 7th century AD.  During the Middle Ages, Whitby became one of the more important North Sea fishing centers, and by the late 18th century it was also one of England's greatest shipbuilding towns.  As its shipping fortunes declined due to the shallow harbor depth, it's evolved into a popular tourist getaway.
