Free Website Launches for Yorkshire Based Families

A new website has launched as an online resource to help families living in Yorkshire discover the best local family-friendly attractions, events and accommodation. lists the top places to stay, attractions and activities for children and a comprehensive ‘what’s on’ guide featuring the best of the county.

Yorkshire Family Events is the brainchild of Lee Ruddock, who saw a gap in the market for online family resources.  “Yorkshire needed a one stop website for families to visit to assist in the planning of their days out or family holidays,” Lee explains.  “ is the number one online destination to discover the best attractions and events perfect for children and families.  Anything worth knowing about in the Yorkshire region will be listed on the site to enable families to plan the most enjoyable family day out.”     

The site caters especially for parents and carers of children of all ages, giving helpful information about fun things to do across the county.  From family friendly museums and farm attractions to sports and theme parks, the website lists everything parents need to know.  It has a simple feature allowing users to list attractions, events or hotels in a grid or a map formation according to their priorities; allowing for efficiency and convenience.  The website also allows parents to filter through the results from the highest rated attractions or places to eat, or the newest. 

The news section of the website is a functional page which publishes information on current or temporary events happening in the local area for children and families.  With vital information on the county’s half term activities, visiting shows and performance reviews, museum exhibitions, other family events and even sales at children’s stores, Yorkshire Family Events ensure families are kept up to date with the latest interesting family attractions. also provides a unique online marketplace for homemade crafts and products produced in the Yorkshire area.  This is where creative northerners can connect with buyers to increase business and trade in Yorkshire, and people can browse for the perfect local produce or gift.

Lee added, “Now Yorkshire parents have a one-stop resource for finding the top attractions, restaurants, hotels, events and hand made products in this fantastic county we live in.”

About Yorkshire Family Events:

My name is Lee Ruddock and I live in West Yorkshire with my soon to be my Wife later this year and our 3 year old son. This website came about from when I was out of work early 2013 and had a lot of time to spend with my then 2 year old son. I was searching the internet for a one stop website that listed attractions as well as events, basically anything in Yorkshire you could visit with a child. But I could not come across one that catered just for parents/carers of children.

This is your number one online destination to discover Attractions/Events/Accommodation/Hand Made Products and Family Friendly Restaurants in this fantastic county that is Yorkshire.
