Yorkshire was historically split up into three parts known as the East, North, and West Ridings while the county town York was in the middle. In the local government reorganization of England in 1974 the counties of West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire were established instead. Humberside included the former East Riding and Cleveland included part of the former North Riding.

It also has several large city’s including York, Hull, Sheffield, Bradford, Doncaster, Barnsley and the largest of all Leeds.
