Take a trot round York, with Yorkie!

VISIT YORK has appointed a Yorkshire Terrier – named, of course, Yorkie – to present a travelogue series.

The three-part short film series, on You Tube, follows the Yorkshire Terrier on an unhurried adventure around York and North Yorkshire. Viewers are given a canine perspective of the historic city and county's most iconic sights in a series designed to showcase the many adventures visitors to the city and North Yorkshire can have.

#Yorkie can be seen strolling along one of the best preserved medieval streets in Europe, The Shambles, getting a dogs-eye view of the locomotives at the National Railway Museum, taking a journey on a steam train across the North Yorkshire Moors, and roaming among the ruins of Whitby Abbey.

He also trots around the gardens of Castle Howard and explores the history of the city's chocolate making heritage at York's Chocolate Story.

Kate McMullen, head of Tourism at Make It York, says: 'We know that photos and videos of lovable animals, especially dogs are really popular on social media. So by commissioning this travelogue series through the eyes of Yorkie, we aim to give newcomers to York and York fans a fun flavour of the adventure that awaits them here in beautiful York and North Yorkshire.’

The first episode will be released in mid-August, followed by two remaining episodes in September.
