Yorkshire is the third best region in the world to visit in 2014, according to travel guide company Lonely Planet.

In a list of the top ten regions around the globe, Yorkshire was placed only below the hotly tipped and up-and-coming mountainous area of Sikkim in India and the beautiful barren landscape of The Kimberley on the Western Australian coast.
