Fun Facts about Yorkshire:

In case you need any more convincing that West Yorkshire is the perfect location for your special day, here are some fun facts about the area.

For all of you food lovers out there, Yorkshire has been the starting point for a few of our household favorites. The recipe for the classic Yorkshire pudding was written in 1737 and was originally called ‘dripping pudding’ and now 400 years later is traditionally eaten every Sunday with a roast dinner.

Wensleydale (Gromit’s favorite cheese) is produced at The Wensleydale Creamery in the heart of Yorkshire. This cheese is famous for being packed full of flavour with a creamy and crumbly texture.

Last but not least, the famous Yorkshire Tea was founded in 1886 and was first served at tea and coffee kiosks by a man and his two sons, on the streets of Yorkshire.

These hidden gems are really worth checking out if you have your heart set on a wedding in this area!
